Made with lots of sticky, inky fingers


Hi everybody, here's wishing you all a happy Sunday. I had a great day yesterday, just playing with paper, paste, inks, sprays and cardboard - can it be better? Not for me. Here are some of the things I made.

First of all I made a cardboard tag, embossed and distressed as yesterday. The image (Lost Coast Designs) has been stamped with Archival green and embossed with Perfect pearls in bronze. I stamped onto a scrap of designer paper. Once again I used string, some beads and a strip of lace - thanks Diane! - for the embellies.



The grungy postcard has been made with a blended paper background, which has been stamped, collaged with images from CI, and stamped with one of my fave quotes.




And last but not least a concertina album, with sewn in journaling pages and chipboard covers. I covered them with some of the beautiful, hand-painted paper that also came from Diane. The album has a black elastic band to close it, which I have decorated with a Prima butterfly. The butterfly can be taken off so that the album can easily be stored in a handbag.






Okay, that's all for today. Have a great day, take care, and thanks a lot for dropping in!

  15. Hi Val, wow I love that tag, you did a wonderful job with distressing and all the added embellies. Everything looks great.
    I much prefer to play with paper, glue and paint than that darn sewing machine. It sure was giving me the gears today but I am now wearing one of my dresses and it is so nice and cool in this darn heat.
    Thanks for dropping by.
