Did that get you attention? What's that all about you might ask. Well last night Hubby and I went to dinner at Alberton, a historic house here in Auckland. The dinner was to celebrate 150 years since it was built. The original owner was a gentleman called Allan Kerr Taylor who was born and spend some time growing up in India and last night's dinner was a celebration of that. And the brief was to come in Indian or colonial garb. We decided to go with the Indian look. I borrowed a Sari from one of my Indian colleagues, as well as getting some instructions on how to wrap it, and hubby hired a Maharaja outfit.
and here are a couple of photos of us with our friends at the dinner.
I used a Penny Black set called Floral Applique and silver embossed it. Then did a resist with Peacock Feathers and Black Soot Distress ink.
I've entered it into the Penny Black "Beat the Heat" Challenge
Thanks for visiting today.
