Oddball Marylin ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Hi!
Tamara here with you. For this Sunday's post I made a mini album. This mini album first started as a small notebook. I made the cover and the notebok part and then I wasn't too sure if I like it, so I tore it apart and added the album pages. I added an envelope, because there are always some spare pictures that don't go with the others in the album or they should be kept a bit private. lol


For decoration I used some of my Maja papers from my stash and added some flowers and brads. 

In the middle of the project I started creating this album for my daughter. She has quite a few polaroid pictures and this mini album is just the perfect size for them. First I wanted to add a unicorn to the front but then (again) changed my mind and added Oddball Marylin. Loveeeee her!!!

Image was coloured up using Distress Ink pads on 300g HP watercolour paper and then fussy cut.

Distress Ink pads used for colouring:
skin: vintage photo
hair: antique linen, walnut stain
outfit: victorian velvet, pumice stone, black soot

 

I added lots of glitter to her outfit and her diamonds. Sentiment that comes with the image is added inside.

That's all from me today.
Hugs, t.

GNOMEDEER ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Hi!
Tamara here with you sharing my brand new Christmas shaker card. Is it time yet for making Christmas cards? I think it is. On this card I used Gnomedeer rubber stamp from the latest release. I stamped the image using Archival Ink - Jet black on 300g hot pressed watercolour paper. I like using hot pressed watercolour paper because it's very smooth and it makes colouring such fun. I coloured up the image with Distress ink pads and then fussy cut it.

 

Distress Ink pads used for colouring:
skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
gnome 1: mowed lawn, black soot
gnome 2: broken china, black soot
gnome 3: barn door, fired brick, black soot

 

Inside the shaker part I used sequins, diamonds, snowflakes and (fake) candy.


Have a great day!
