Evening,everyone,over last couple of days,I have been kinder,playing with some ideas,in my head. I wanted to create,something,on the small side,yet wanted it to be,elegant,and vintage.
This has taken,me a couple of days,to get it how I wanted it so here it is.
4 matchboxes,
4 brads,
7 GYpsies,papers,
Lace from my stash,sent by my dear friend sarah.
Crafty Individuals,picture,Rose wild orchid,crafts,
Tim Holtz,broken China distress inks,
Basil Basics card stock,
Tiny embellishements,inside the drawers.Buttons,and key.

I have also made,this atc,and a tag gosh cant remember the last time I made an atc,all the items,on the above,and below,I have bought from The Fruit Pixie and Craft Obsessions These are both brilliant sites,and if you want something that little bit different,they both have a great collection,of Tims holtz,7 Gypsies,and lots of other tiny elements quick delivery too.
The Mussell shell I have coated with alcohol inks,and perfect pearls.The seaweed,too has been covered with perfect pearls,Anna griffin stamped with fired brick,plus,used brocken china then added another shell which was sent to me by dear buddie Jude. The Atc,paper from fruit pixie,buttons,acetate,from fruit pixie, bingo card,from craft obsessions,along with the tiny frame. Rest from my stash.
And finally a card I have made with a stamp from sugar nellie called country cousins,

DP's Magnolia,Basic grey,card candy,flowers,from mulberrycrafts.pins,from ebay,rest from my stash colured with pro markers,onto 30gsm,watercolour card,extra smooth. MS butterfly punch,Followed the sketch from papertake weekly.

and that's why your creations are so gorgeous!!! you take the time to think about me!!! me? i just dive in. sink or swim. that's me. impulsive, no patience.

u sure you're not gonna open a store? how about shop handmade or etsy????? or a separate blog? if you have a paypal account you get the cart button FREE! it's ALL free! and you know i'll help setting it up - which if you can make these beauties, you can start a shop blog!!!

think on it.

hugs :)
