The Road to a Friends House............................

Well for must of us it's back to work tomorrow, including me. I have had a lovely restful weekend off and have managed a few crafty hours. I haven't however accomplished must in terms of completing any makes but I have had a jolly good sort out, which as we all know can be very cleansing for the soul!! I did also manage to finish a couple of things off that have been hanging around for a while and start a few things playing with my distress paints that have been sitting around on my desk for a couple of weeks.
One of the things I finished off was a very late birthday present for a friend of mine. Which is for a bit of a joke really.
Background has been made using Paperartsy Fresco finish paints with a bit of stenciling. Houses are Claudine Hellmuth Dwelling foam and clear stamp set. Stampotique Frog on a bicycle coloured with Dylusion sprays. Torn book paper for the road and some punched flowers also from book paper and again coloured with Dylusions.The sentiment has been stamped using a small alphabet stamp set. It is meant as a bit of fun, the sentiment reads "The road to a friends house is never a long one -  unfortunately". This is then framed using  a Dylusion stamp from around The Edge and the mount (which was cream) I have painted with black distress paint then stamped the design on using peeled paint distress paint.
The whole thing is then to be displayed in a black frame in order to go on a wall. I didn't photograph it in it's frame as there is just too much glare from the glass, but it does finish it off nicely.

I am entering this into this weeks challenge over at Allsorts Challenge Blog where the theme for their current challenge is Animals.
