Old Cardboard

I've been trying to get this posted all week but just had not managed it until now. On Saturday I had four crafty friends around to play, one who does exquisite parchment and sat doing that all day while the rest of us got messy. I always save any decent pieces of cardboard with the intentions of using it, so Saturday that was what we did. We all used the same stamp (from Indigo Blu) and flower dies (from Heartfelt Creations). We also used some tissue paper and Tattered Angels sprays and needless to say we all ended up with something different. I got the Cricut out and cut some words out and the butterfly was added right at the end and was a Tim Holtz Sisix die.


Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Gorgeous Sue, the texture is lovely from the tissue and the flowers are beautiful. I can't wait to play with dies and make 3D flowers again :) Take care, Shirleyxx

It sounds as if you all had a great time together and hopefully none of the 'messy' strayed onto the parchment. This is a great use for old cardboard which has turned it into a thing of beauty.
