inspired by Jenny aka Buttons......

Well here I am today with a make I made a while back inspired by the lovely Jenny aka Buttons, whose wonderful blog can be found here. The techniques I used here are inspired by this post here, the Friday Focus for Frilly and Funkie. There is lots of great Friday Focus projects that focus on all sorts of different products and some great inspiration. So this one is inspired by Jenny :


I started by using all the techniques detailed by Jenny on some card . I then cut this up to cover the pocket envelope. I love how this highlights the textures. make sure you pop here for all the details.


I love hearts and so I added a heart cut using the movers and shapers heart die and then added ink and a good coating of rock candy. Some wings, a twirl of wire and a chit chat sticker and the envelope is finished.


 
To place inside the pocket envelope I made an atc in coordinating colours using the distress paints and some small pieces of the paper used to cover the envelope.


This heart was again cut from the movers and shapers die and has wings and wire, but was covered with texture paste through sequin waste  and then coloured with inks . the background was done using distress paints .


 thanks for stopping by
have a fun and inky day!

  4. Oh Trace, thank you for the greatest compliment in taking an idea forward and creating this amazing project in your own style!!! LOVE how that embossed texture has really popped out on the envelope and the fact that you have used the coordinating torn strips on your ATC. The hearts are so beautiful and the way you have dragged in the silver paint on the edge of the ATC is so clever.
    People should now be queueing up to join your workshops! Have a peaceful and happy weekend, hugs Jenny xxx
