Old Wives' Tale ~ Simon Says Stamp and Show

Good Morning!!! It's Monday!!! which means, we have a new theme at...

Old Wives' Tale
I had trouble choosing just one Old Wives' Tale but decided to use salt as my theme...

The following old wives' tales should be taken with a pinch of salt.(tee hee)
Bad luck will follow the spilling of salt unless a pinch is thrown over the left shoulder into the face of the devil waiting there.
Put salt on the doorstep of a new house and no evil can enter.
Salty soup is a sign that the cook is in love.
Salt last forever and never spoils.

The Background has been treated with salt sprinkled onto distress stains to create a texture similar to watercolour effect. The bird image is stamped in coffee archival, the bird's have a little salt glued to give a subtle shimmer.

For the bird cage I've been eager to try some salt embossing and applied distress inks to enhance.

The tattered flower was cut from distress Coredinations cardstock, with a sculpture flower centre.

You can find the other goodies on this card at...

Hope it inspires and why not pop round to the rest of the team's inspiring projects!!!
