I hope everyone is well and enjoying some crafty time.

My tag this week is an altered beer mat.  I couldn't decide whether to interpret the theme prettily or scarily but pretty won the day!

I covered the beer mat with some paper napkin and then dirtied it up a bit with some distress ink in pumice stone.  I then added some silver mesh and a TH die cut and embossed butterfly cut from some paper featuring text to echo the background.  I then added some distress inks in shades of pink and purple.  I finished off with some ricrac ribbon as the tie.  Hope you like it.

Off to explore your minibeasts!

See you next week.
