I just loved Tacha's sketch and examples at Scrap RDV. We have Mother's Day tomorrow, and my MIL is now a great-grandmother. Nothing is so special as I baby, so I made a mini album of her first grandchild (now nearly 2 months) as a gift. I found these delightful "ribbons" of baby clothes at my local hobby store. Couldn't resist them!
And the inside . . .
Each of the tags is a mini booklet with 4 photos. Here is the first page of each one.
In fact when I finally sat down to do it, and got out my folder with turquoise etc, I had to laugh . . . . I could make at least 10 cards just with the unfinished and leftover bits and pieces that were lying about!
So now I'm on a roll . . .
I used a piece of card that I had already brayered. Stamped the leaf with Versafine sepia (it appears darker in the photo), and highlighted the tops with white gel pen. The card is actually pale lime green and not so yellow in real. Wanted to keep this one CAS.
For No. 2 I used the inked and stamped page from a book. Got perfect pearls too so a lovely glimmer to it. Here I was following the sketch from Hero Arts National Scrapbook Day.
For my 3rd card I continued with the HA sketch using a scrap of card card with alcohol inks, and pre-inked dots and scripted background.
