And is there honey?

I loved last summer's Lucy Cromwell collection from docrafts - pretty and summery and just plain indulgent with her cakes and tea-party theme.  I'd also succumbed to the Tim Holtz BigZ Clock die and, the two together, led me irresistibly to the Rupert Brooke poem - of which, I, like many, only think of the last two lines.
I used artist's masking fluid to write the lines around the frame and then distressed it in purply inks.  Once it was dry, the masking fluid just rubs off leaving the words in white.  Naturally, the hands of the clock were set at ten to three!
