Springtime Pansies

Good morning all I have a very springtime card for you today.....I saw this technique over at Stamp TV that Melanie Muenchinger did called Whitewash Technique.....looks like my image has been stamped on vellum huh?

Okay now for the details first off I stamped my Jumbo-Pansies from IBFS with Ranger Embossing Ink added some white embossing powder then used mt heat I took a aqua brush and picked up some white craft ink from the corner of the pad and colored the whole image.....BTW I forgot to mention that I stamped my image twice.....after white washing the image I used some colored pads just to add a hint of added some pearls and beads......outline sticker of the hummingbird which I colored with markers.....very simple layout but quite elegant looking....will be sending this out in the mail today to one of my BFF's.....hope she likes it.

Boxed Accordion Album

Hello Peeps how are you on this cold and snowy day?.....I am in the basement and I just finished this project that I have been working on for the last week or so.....the tutorial is by Cristi Maron and purchased from Paper Hoarder papers are  a 6x6 pad called Madeline Collection from Prima.
My daughter in law had asked me to make her granddaughters albums to store pictures and memorabilia of there deceased daddy and I thought this style would be perfect...the top has magnets that hold it closed.

than when opened has 12 pockets to store pictures and small layouts in.

I added tabs on my tags in the pockets so they would be easier to remove.

added some stick-on hardware and painted wooden beads for the feet used glossy accents to reinforce all of the extra's.....didn't put a lot of embellishments because I didn't feel it needed many. 

Entering my project in the following challenges.
