Show us your stuff

inspo board
Whenever I see green I think of Ireland, the green there is so vibrant.
On our tour around Ireland we saw many old castles, some in ruins.
This one at Knappogue was still intact and as we arrived early in the morning, there was still dew or rain left from overnight.
I noticed a spider web with water hanging on it (photo on right).
I've tried to re-create that using a chipboard vine and diamente braid. It is hand made in the sense that I cut it to resemble the spiders web.
There is also a celtic knot behind the title which I punched out.

Ireland has so many wonderful castle ruins - my husband got 'castled out' but I just loved them and could visit all day long! This looks a good one and the spiders web on the soft morning with the dew is fabulous!
