The Color Room #96............

Another very soft and pretty palette at The Color Room this week. Again I followed the sketch,

and indulged my love of stamps and rub-ons with a bit of 'shabby love'.

When I buy card stock for scrapbooking I don't really pay much attention to the composition of the paper, i.e. what it's actually 'made of' and of course papers come in different weights, textures and 'compositions'. All I'm interested in is the 'colour'. Any way this particular paper did not cope well with being wet. In fact it almost disintegrated with just a small spray of water on it. However, once dry, after being blasted with the heat gun in order to try and save it, I loved the very soft "fluffy" edges I was left with....a pleasant 'random' out come.   

Thank you so much to my loyal visitors who drop by and take the time to say a few sweet words.....I love that you do that, and it makes my little world a happier place. xx
