Hi everyone and welcome followers new and old. Back again (feels like it's been an age, even though my last post was only on Wednesday!) Time flies when there are millions of things going on; some good, some not so good, but that's life eh? And now I have any number of challenges to enter so prepare to be bombarded if I can get some projects completed and a faster pace.
Today's tag is one I finished a little while ago but didn't post for some reason. It fits with the requirements for the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge - Read All About It, which has a mega prize awaiting the winner plus details of a fab blog hop. They are celebrating 10 years in style!
Writing letters is a bit of a dying art in these days of emails/twitter/Facebook/etc. so this tag celebrates the time and care that goes into putting pen to paper to convey your thoughts when travelling abroad.
Lots of elements used here including backing papers which have been die cut using a Memory Box typewriter alphabet. In this case I used what would be considered the 'waste'.
The stamps are real and pretty much defined the colour scheme. The fountain pen got covered in Glossy Accents to give it dimension. The feather was rubbed with mica powders to add more shine.
Guess what! More metal from pie tins used for those pen nibs! NOTHING goes to waste in this house!
Right, short, sweet and to the point for once, I will away as there are an embarrasingly huge number of blog posts that need catching up with. Hugs to you all, Buttons x
