For the swap.

Went for a totally different style this time when I altered the CD for the TFC swap.

Used background paper to cover it then stamped and embossed some flourishes in a mix of colours. Added the lovely victorian lady and the flower image which I coloured with pencils. Trimmed with some lace to finish.


Day Dreamer

Bits and pieces.

Had a bit of a lull on the craft side lately, so to get me back in the swing of things I had a look in the box of bits and know the one where you put all the left over bits from previous projects.

I found the day dreamer stamped image, a corner stamped in the same ink, a cream scalloped circle and a greeny blue piece of inked card that I thought might all work together.

Using the same paper as the scalloped circle and the same ink as the image I stamped some foliage to make the background paper. Inked and blended the edges. Stamped a couple of corners on the greeny blue piece and proceeded to matt and layer and ended up with this.
