On the background I used different kinds of brown inks, and then just dripped some water on it. For the barrel I used the biggest oval die I had and just cut a bit off on top and on the bottom, embossed it and added the black bands. Then some strings and tags. That's it.
I couldn't take the picture outside because it's raining here in the Foothills of NC today, and it's a bit chilly, too. I hope everybody has a great week. Blessings, Renate
