Good Things Come in Small Packages



'Good Things Come in Small Packages', is our new Challenge them over Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
Please pop over for all the details and see what we have all been making. We hope you will join us, but ask you to remember that we like to see stamping on your project .


As you can see from the tape measure my project is quite small and have to say was a bit fiddly to make, but I realy enjoyed trying something different.


The outside covers of my Concertina Book started life as two Mahjong tiles, they were covered with a few layers of Shabby Pink  Frantage embossing powder and are quite  textured to the touch.


For the inside I used a variety of stamps  by Pink Paislee and Creative Expressions.



The colouring is water colours, Distress inks, Spun Sugar, Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet and  Tea dye.


Other challenges I will be entering are-
In the Pink Challenge- Pink and Anything but Square.
Moving Along with the Times -Christmas Gifts.  This small item will be going with other gifts to a friend

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, your comments are always appreciated.

  32. That's absolutely astounding! As someone who grew up surrounded by dollshouses, and making things for them, I know exactly how fiddly this must have been - and it's just beautiful! Glorious stamping, and colours, and the textured Frantage is utterly lovely!
