Leaving Card/Gift & Arty Girlz

Today my mate, Louise, leaves work & she starts a new job on Tuesday. So I made her a gift & tag. I also made her this card which was a class I took during the cybercrop at the weekend. As I haven't shared any of this work I thought it would all fit the Arty Girlz Open Theme this week. She won't see this blog until lunch time so I'm safe to blog early!!!
The pink background is hand made using pigment inks & various stamps in grey. Also a bit of sequin waste. The floral stamp is coloured in & beads stitched in most of the flowers. This pic isn't clear. It was hard to take!
This laid down shot does show the beads.
This is the cover of a notebook I made her. It's been sat on my desk for over a month & I'm so desperate to give it to her. Again all made with pigment inks & stamps & black embossed.
This is the tag I made last night after work just to finish the gift off. She adores purples but likes oriental pinks so I thought a purple tag would be in order. I stamped onto a scrap piece of Double sided Papermania paper, Lilac Dragonfly. The other side of this paper I used to make the Glamour Puss layout below.
