Hi folks, how's your day?
I started off full of good intentions but haven't actually achieved very much. It's a pretty dull, grey and uninspiring day here.
Whilst on my recent vacation I acquired some plastic bubble packaging for gifties and decided to make use of it today. I bought them in Violettes in Lakeland, Florida, jointly with Wynneth as we didn't feel either of us could use TWELVE of them! Anyway, I chose buttons for my first attempt and cut the panel for the back piece. I chose a larger corner rounder than was perhaps ideal but it was my first attempt. For the "front" of the back panel I stamp my sentiment in black memento ink and then used my Inkadinkado Dot flourish set stamped in grape jelly memento ink. For the back I stamped the Inkadinkado morphic bugs butterfly in versamark ink and then brushed pearl, purple, pale green and bronze pearled over, setting with hairspray. I filled my "bubble" with buttons before cutting out the "hanging loop" and threaded turquoise and tan organza ribbon through, tying in a bow to complete the project. It's not my finest work but it was an experiment.
I hope you think it was worthwhile - might have another go later . . . .
Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday
