life does not have to be wonderful...to be perfect for creative expressions DT
well thankfully my dt makes were made before my hand was really bad, so still being a good girl and resting it as much as possible.....so hard it is still sore and I am resigned to the fact that it will be strapped in some way for a long time...I am creating some pieces very slowly...and trying to comment for as many people as possible..thanks to everyone for the kind thoughts..i really am resting my hand as much as I can!! it is true crafty people are really kind! but onwards here is my make for creative expressions this week with the wonderful art houses stamps designed by Sam Poole and also a wonderful embossing folder uber by couture creations.. So here is my make :
and the inside, perfect for a gift card or use the card inside
for a personal message
I started by folding a large tag in half and punching a matching hole in the inside/ other half..for the seam binding later.. I then embossed the front half. I coloured using broken china, and added splats of broken china distress stain . (I am loving splatting these stains!)I then embossed one half using the fab uber embossing folder from couture creations . The tag was then coloured using broken china distress ink and edged with peacock feathers . Outside: I stamped out the house stamp in peacock feathers and then added some water to the crown, using a waterbrush. I added broken china to the rest .
I added a philosophy tag, coloured silver and a mini crown from my stash. Inside: I stamped out the great sentiment onto a piece of card, and added to create a pocket. I made an atc with a greeting but you could easily add a gift card in here instead..
