Love Love Love Ground Espresso


Ground Espresso ………… gorgeous deep and soft brown hues!

Good morning everyone! Despite being in the middle of a huge craft room re-organisation (no idea why I chose now to do it!) I couldn't resist  getting stuck in with the new Ground Espresso Distress Ink.  


I just knew it would be great for my rolled roses, but I love the other different shades I got too. 


Sprayed onto the leaves which I then covered in Distress Crackle Paint
Sprayed over gesso and texture paste
Ribbon mopped up in the residue on my craft mat


Just all my usual suspects, but I just wanted to MAKE something with this wonderful new colour!

Thank you for joining me today and I hope you enjoy experimenting with this wonderful new colour. I honestly think Vintage Photo has been knocked off it's pedestal here!

Stunning! Never knew brown could be so beautiful. The many shades of one color on your tag and the stamping are divine.
