Squaring up

I’ve got a lot of duty stuff done recently so feel justified in a little playful crafting.

This card is inspired by the challenges at Less is More (Using a peel-off – or several in this case!) and Cards in Envy (Hip to be Square).

The watercolouring of the background took the longest: the result of several trials.  I added Woodware Francoise Leaves peel-offs (I’ve had them for a while!) and more peel-offs for the frame (straighter than they look in the photo, honest!).

Feeling square and grey
Age comes before you’re aware
Don’t let it slip in…
