Hello people, sorry I have been absent a while, life gets in the way as you know. I spent over two hours going round other people's blogs, missing a show I had planned to watch in the process, only to discover people don't read blogs anymore, or at least they don't appear to read mine, so I felt like I had wasted my precious hours! Not something I intend to repeat.
First up is a birthday card for Joanne on our Chrysalis forum. It was Joanne's birthday the day after mine so we had two birthday games in one weekend. I used some gorgeous My Minds Eye paper, Life Stories Antique Flowers. I thought it went well with this stamped paperbag studio's image. The charm is actually a bit of broken bracelet passed to me by my mate Jade, who has her Grandma busy squirrelling these kind of things away for me. The ribbon is from one of Jade's garments & it finished the piece off. I used antique eyelets to match the colours in the card.
This piece is part of the Tag Swap that I am hosting on Chrysalis. The tag is for Carrie and made from fabric backed with felt. I printed the fabric paper with digital scrap paper from Digichick. I stamped my images using Adirondack Dye ink pads & stitched beads to the flowers by hand before fixing to the fabric with spraymount. I printed the girl onto fabric paper & glued her in place. I tried an image transfer but it was rather too bulky. I printed my quote out on vellum.
