I started by smooshing my background piece with some Aqua Mist re-inker on my craft mat, and then when dry, tried Ashley's technique of scrunching up a baby wipe and dipping it into Aqua Mist and Hawaiian Shores inks that I had put on a clear block. I ended up covering up a lot of the background with the rest of my card, but if you enlarge the photo, you can see it better!
I used the Mix & Mat: Flourish die to cut a piece of white to add my flowers (Some Like It Hot) onto, and then also added my sentiment banner (Just Desserts) over it. A few enamel dots finished off my card. Really like the way this background turned out and think it adds a nice backdrop for the rest of the card. Thanks Ashley!!
I FINALLY made a coin purse!! I have had the coin purse die for a looooong time and never done anything with it till I saw MARYBETH had made a couple using felt backed material (The Felt Pod) and absolutely fell in love with them! Had to order some of the material and then re-watched ERIN LINCOLN'S video, and voila! Easy peasy!!
Even putting the 4" zipper in was easy! And this material is so cool...does NOT ravel! Can't wait to make some more now! Thanks Marybeth for inspiring me!! :0)
