Altered Tape Measure

Hi folks!  The Challenge from Tando this month is all about flowers.  I had a freebie tape measure recently which was all white so I have altered it to make it stand out in my sewing basket haha!  I am always losing tape measures...mmm...wonder if the cats steal them hahaha!

The tape measure itself has been coloured with alcohol inks and the Tando flowers with acrylic paint.  The larger flower has Crackle Accents over it.  This was very simpele to do and looking at it now would make lovely little presents!  Thank you for looking today, HUGS xxx
