A is for Apple!

I saw these Maya Road apple chip shapes (available here) after I saw Linda doing some fab things with them and had to have some.  They arrived last week but for some reason I couldn't settle on what I wanted to do first.  In the end I coloured them with spiced marmalade distress ink, overstamped with a Studio 490 background (gingham) in the same colour, and stamped another Studio 490 stamp in brushed corduroy and then covered it with a thin layer of Rock Candy distress paint.  Once that was dry I added a Paperartsy bird stamped on metal, and some bits and bobs!  Looking at it now the crackle is dry, the gingham background doesn't show up any more...


It fits with the theme for the new Alphabet challenge here where this time round you have to use something starting with the letter as the main theme.  I had some trouble scanning and uploading it, it looks a bit wonky!
