With being away so much I haven't crafted for a while, (other than my crochet on the move), but I found these photos in my files and realised that I had never posted them. A chance to post some crafting!
This is a concertina niche card that I made after I missed the workshop given by my friend Paul of the Artsiders. Paul is really talented and makes some gorgeous shabby chic cards.
The Outer Cover
Here I used my favourite background of Distress Inks and stencils.
I then spritzed over it with gold Glimmer Mist to tone it down.
The niche before I stuffed it full of sewing ephemera
The niche before it was spritzed with inks.
From making this card I had the idea to make a concertina tag bag and the instructions for this are in my 21st May post on the sidebar. It's made in exactly the same way as the card but with one end missing and, of course, the concertina sides are cut to fit the size of the tag.
Here's another card using my latest fave stamps by Michael Powell from his Urban Stamp range.
The Concertina Sides
Thanks to her very generous invitation (does she know what she's up for?) I'm off to Cardarian's Happy Place in Slovenia, with my friend Donna, and besides plans to visit some beautiful places in a country I've never before visited, we will be doing lots of crafting on the balcony in the shade, whilst trying to stay cool. It's 35C there!! Hopefully, I will be able to post some of what we get up to.
Watch this space!
