Bubble background

I tried my hand at a 'new to me' technique for a swap with a group I belong to. While it can be a tad messy blowing re-inker mixed with kids bubble wand soap-stuff with a straw, it creates the most amazing results. I also needed a sympathy card (too many for my liking lately) and the soft subtle background suited my purpose. If I recall correctly I used Desert Sand and Crystal Blue re-inkers, on White Daisy CS. I used the Card Word Puzzle stamp set to create the white embossed flowers. I think it turned out well given as I was just playing around to see what I could do with the bubble patterned paper.

The yarn I used is a really old sassy strands from my stash. I've had them since I began with Close to my Heart but seldom used them then. Now I seem to find them irresistible. go figure. what's old is new again it seems

First post for new blog

I took the plunge and have changed the name of my paper and jewellery crafting business. Papergems incorporates the two things I love to do best, make paper crafts and fabricate jewellery. The paper crafts I make are little gems of creativity and I use a lot of semi-precious gemstones in my jewellery designs. This name took me three years of to-ing and fro-ing of different concepts and identities  and I think I finally got it right. phew , now on to better things , like making jewellery and paper crafts. Visit again to see what I've been up to.
