A True Story

Inspired by some of the hangy things my friend Linda has been making, I decided to make something tonight that used more embellishments than is the norm for me. I used one of my shield designs from a little while ago, cut twice and layered to make it stronger.

Tim Holtz type charm, memo pin, Stampin' Up large eyelets, TH ball chain and a copper paper clip frame - not exactly overloaded, but more than I would usually use! :)

Background colours are Wild Honey and Barn Door Distress Inks, tree was stamped and embossed with a grainy white embossing powder before inking. Click on the image if you wish to see a larger view :)
