I have joined a few crafting groups on Facebook in an effort to get me crafting more and to be able to swap ideas.

This is something I made for two of the challenges in the groups.

This started life as a page from a 7 gypsies tag book that I have had for a couple of years and didn't know how to use.  I had originally tried to cut it down to 6 inches using my guillotine and messed  it up.  Who knew that it wouldn't cut chipboard.  I wont be trying that again.  Any way, I couldn't use it for that project and made this instead.

The background started life as a piece of white card stock, which I inked and masked using distress inks.  I also went around the edges with some mica powder to add a bit of sparkle and a slightly distressed look. (Looks better in real life.)  Every thing else came from my stash.  I'm trying not to hoard and any more, so bits I have been saving are starting to come out.

I really need to craft and blog more.

Any way, happy crafting xx
