Steampunk


Saturday once again and I just want to thank you for dropping in. I am truly honoured that you visit and leave such lovely comments. 

Below is a tag/hanging that I made for my crafty blogging friend Jenny, whom you all know as 'Buttons' of Pushing the Right Buttons blog.  

The background was painted in PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paint in Ice Blue. 
The stamps used were from Oxford Impressions London Blue stamp plate. 

I had some newsprint tissue paper in my stash, ( recycled wrapping from a parcel) which I backed on to a piece of card, distressing the edges with some vintage photo DI



An adage ticket and some ideaology pieces finished it off. Oops............. I  also used cotton ribbon, from my crafty friend Anita Houston, stamping Happy Birthday on it.

Tonight I am babysitting............. looking after.my niece and nephew who live outside Edinburgh. I dont get to see them often enough so really looking forward to spending time together tonight. They both love crafting.........................so you can guess what we will be doing !!!!  

Have a great weekend whatever you are doing and I will catch up soon :-)
