Tag & Post Card

Hello, Hope you are having a wonderful week end. What a busy few days, the computer and printer have made up and are finally speaking to one another again.  James was here for a few days belss,  and so many churcha activities and all have been wonderful.  Any way I can not tell you how happy that the Comp & Printer are back onb speaking tearms. I have already made good use of this wonderful news ;0) I made a post card (PC) for the challenge over at The Three Muses The theme is 'Tea for Two' 

I am not a tea drinker or coffee for that matter! But quality time chatting with a gilfriend is what I thought of. I found this photo through google I have printed it off and aged it by crunching it up and adding, tea Distress Ink (DI) and also photo DI to. Same for the card stock too. This photo looked very 1920s I love lots of Art Deco stuff, buildings, pottery jewllery etc but haven't got pennies to collect this kind of art although I did get my paws on some repoduction post cards earlier this week. I have distressd a vintage button & another wooden button from stash. Also distressed the lace by inking & fraying ,sewn the buttons to it then stuck to the PC.

I also chose a photo and perferated the edges with my Cuttlebug to make a stamp, plus lots more DIs and more stamps to make this post card look like a wee bit of France lol. I did tell you I am into very french things at the moment lol still saving a little at a time (hope to get there for a few days this summer) just in case you didn't know already lol.

I have also made a tag for Tag It On  Their theme is 'Favoraite Film' Now this is one of my all time Fave movies, all though I love films and I love so many I have to say this one I can watch over & over and never get board (Like Pride & Predudice BBC version) 'You've Got Mail' is a film I can watch over & over! The origional is wonderful too I have only seen that once when it was on TV it's an old B&W called 'The Shop around the Corner' with James Stewart and the chap that played the wizard, in the wizard of OZ. I managed to find it on for under £10 very rare I actually didn't think you could get it any more, so thanx for this theme it made me think and now I have the origional version on it's way too!

I really enjoyed making this, It was so nice to get some ink on my fingers again.  It feels like forever since I last made something or posted on the blog! any way,  I even made the little envelopes from some scrap paper.  This is plain white card stock covered in DI and stamps (various) then layered with some images from google relating to the film.

Here I have covered the computer screen with glossy accents (you can just see Toms head shining lol) as well as the words they look like epoxy stickers now and I was really quite thrilled when it was finished. Now don't for get the clocks go fwd in UK on 28th so you will be robbed of an hour in bed however, on the bright side it wont get dark until about 8pm and the nights are going to get lighter ever week now. 

I'm looking forward to that craft wise to, the light and also lots of out side food in our garden. Let's just hope the snow stays away and the warm weather continues. Enjoy your wonderful Sunday.
