A hat for Ascot


The weather today is awful. One minute it is raining, then it is snowing so everywhere is looking very messy. A quick post before we go out. I'd love to spend the day indoors but we have tickets for the Theatre.

A friend asked me to make a Birthday card for a friend of hers with whom she is planning to go to Ascot this year, where hats are of course the order of the day. I used one of my Debbi Moore vintage images and stamped it 3 times, once onto card and then onto 2 different colour papers, which I then paperpeiced and decoupaged. I wanted to keep the look very elegant. I sued lots of Prima flowers, flat backed pearls and lovely silver card candy from Craftwork cards.
