Mini album

I dag har jeg kost meg med å lage et mini album med bilder av familien ♥
Bingo kortene er fra Jenni Bowlin 
Nøkkel, anheng og tekstlapper er fra Tim Holtz.
Gull hjertene er fra Studio Calico

Printet ut små bilder og stanset ut sirkler men en liten punch.

Fant frem permen med QuicKutz og fant denne sirkelen som jeg ville bruke som ramme på en av bildene. Det gikk helt fint å stanset ut QuicKutz med Big Shot Plus.

Punchet ut et lite hull i alle kortene. 

Ha en fortsatt fin dag ♥

Da har jeg endelig fått testet Tim Holtz nye farge mermaid lagoon.... nydelig blåfarge

Først påførte jeg tag'en Texture Paste fra Ranger over stensiler fra Tim. 
Påførte Distress Stain - mermaid lagoon på underlag og trykket "midten" av tag'en ned mot underlaget. Tørket med varmepistol. Distresset resten av tag'en med Distress ink pad - frayed burlap og walnut stain. Dryppet noen vanndråper over. 
Stemplet "love" i hjørnet med stempel fra Tim Holtz 
Limte på kakeserviett og påførte hele tag'en med Distress Stickles - clear rock candy. Det gir et litt glittrende uttrykk. En fin effekt. 

Oppi flasken dryppet jeg en dråpe med Distress Ink - mermaid lagoon. Limte et klistremerke hjerte fra Studio Calico på utsiden. Seam binding bånd er farget med Distress Stain - meramid lagoon.

Rosene fra Tim er malt med Distress Paint - tarnished brass 
lot de tørke og påførte Stickles gold over. 
Limte på tekst fra Tims - small talk.

Ha en fin dag.
