Almost Wordless Wednesday


It's almost Wednesday. And I'm almost wordless today. Almost...

A little experiment with Engraved Fruits, kraft paper, colored pencils, distress ink and clear embossing powder for the May Hero Arts Challenge. Love the simplicity-I didn't think the cards needed a sentiment.


(Design heavily influenced by the amazing Kelley Eubanks with the twine wrapping and ink distressed edges.)
