~ Tea-Dyed Lace and Fairy Wings ~
Fairy wings, dipped in tea -- a new favorite of mine. Marilyn sent me my order of scrunchy ribbon, and fairy wings. It has been so fun the last few days, when I have a few moments to create, to mess around with her creations. I also recently got some lovely trims from this etsy store... so wonderful; you can see some of it stitched onto the shimmery heart on this card...
... I keep a little pot of tea in the refridgerator, and when my trims want to be aged a little, and even sometimes the fairy wings, or tiny tags, I open up the little pot and stir away. Good times. sometimes that's even more fun than actually using the tea-dyed goodies.
Another new etsy favorite: this store, where I can find such beautiful patterned papers like these I used on the cards and albums today. (if you can't find the same collections in that etsy store, you can search online for them: the collections are Bailey, McKenna, Life's Journey, and Ancestry -- all so pretty).
Just some bitty inspiration books created for an etsy order. it always makes me happy to imagine up something she will love.
Yes, I have officially decided that Marilyn's scrunchy ribbons are the best to be found. anywhere. Give it a try and you'll not ever want any ribbon but hers!
I love butterflies.. felt ones, especially. isn't it fun when you can make them soft and fuzzy?
I have to run off now. next week will be busy for me.
Thank you for dropping by... I appreciate all your kind, thoughtful words.
have a restful day!
