I borrowed a baroque stencil by Donna Downey from my sweet sister Annika (actually, she wasn't here so I just took it LOL), THANKS SWEETY hihi, and used it to create some texture in the background.
SB Creatief ).
Then came the fun bit; not this Bister stuff is quite new to me; my sister ordered it for us and we have all the colours, but it does take some getting used to. I used mahogany and natural for this page, but the mahogany was much redder than I expected.
So here's the result of the spread with the Bister. For me the contrast between the colour of the background paper and the Bister was too strong so I decided to tune it down with some Lindy's Stamp Gang spray.
