Hiya ladies , here is a challnge I entered over on Cardz n Scrapz it was for an alterd spoon and stupid me made a wooden spoon first of all nad then realised it was for a metal spoon so another excuse to get the alcohol inks out ;) here are the 2 results x
I am always looking for ways to photograph my ATC'S and I love this idea x
