Deco pages

Background is brayered posh inks. Stamps by Invoke Arts and Rubbadubbadoo

Decorated envelope

This swap called for a swap item in an envelope as pretty as the contents. I made a little booklet using some brayered posh inks card and used a Penny Black stamp. I then decorated the envelope with the same posh inks put onto a non stick sheet and spritzed with water/perfect pearls. I then dipped the envelope into the ink to decorate. I finished it off with some of the same stamp as on the booklet in a darker red colour. I hope my swap partner likes it. I just have to finish the envelope off when I know who it's going to.

Another deco page

Another deco page, double sided this time. I used a brayered gesso resist on white glossy card this time for the front - not as striking as the black but still pretty. The stamps are from Crafty Individuals, Catslife press and Hero Arts.

Deco page

This the last page in Adrienne's deco book for NGS so it's now on its way back to her. I used the brayered gesso resist for the background on the only piece of glossy black card I have. It's a lovely background but I'll need to get more card before I can make more of these. The stamp is by Crafty Individuals.

Tag it swap

There is a swap running on one of my groups where one person is chosen to be that month's IT girl and chooses a theme. Everyone in the swap then makes something and sends it to her. May's IT girl is Carol Clements and her theme was travel/vacation.

I made a folded ATC for her. I don't often make anything with this theme so I needed to scrabble around to find something appropriate so it took a little while to make.

The stamps are from Paperartsy, Crafty Individuals and Hero arts.

Secret page

I made a deco page for a secret birthday book for Adrienne so I've not been able to show it but now the birthday has arrived and the secret has been sprung I can show you my page.

The front is made from a collage of scrapbook papers painted using fluid acrylics. The back page uses stamps from Crafty Individuals. The background uses the waxed paper resist technique.

Set of four

These four ATCs are for a swap where you make four connected ATCs. They should look whole when together and OK when apart. This is my first attempt at this. The background is brayered posh inks and the bird is some Bazzill card stock put through a cuttlebug embossing folder. I was just cutting it into an interesting shape when I ended up quite accidently with a bird so I had to use that.
