ABC, 123

This weeks Challenge theme over at Sugar Creek Hollow is 'Numbers and Letters'.
We would like you to use both on your project.
Remember our style is Vintage/shabby chic. 
 Please pop over to get all the details ,see what we have all been making and catch up on the latest new from Sugar Creek Hollow.

My card was made using Graphics 45 papers from the ABC Primer stack. 
 Simple matting and layering, with  added shading using my favourite Vintage photo distress ink.
I tried to get a marbled look to the   letters and numbers, using Dylusions lime green ink spray and tarnished brass distress stain. It seems to have worked, my hands looked rather colourful afterwards.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I always appreciate your comments.
