Craft Barn Alpha Challenge

‘X marks the spot’ is the title for my piece for the Craft barn Alpha Challenge where the letter is X. A quite diabolical letter too! So I took the easy route – and made a scrolly, distressed map.dictionary-09-16-x-is-for-sig

Difficult to see on the pearlised paper scroll but there is stamping; some bushes, a tree and background script.

Materials used:

Distress Inks – Spiced Marmalade, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain

Stamps – Katzelkraft, unknown tree

Wooden letter from stash

Pearl paper from stash

Gold pen

White gel pen
