Sweet Darling ~ Card

Oct 16, 2013

Seam Binding and Archival Ink make for a fabulous combination. I wanted a little something different for the title of my card so I decided to stamp the wording onto seam binding.

A really quick project

Mar 28, 2007

I love using crackling medium on chipboard and think it gave the piece a really nice shabby chic feel which is how Madelyn and soon to be Isabella Kate’s room is decorated.
