Feminine and Fancy at TIOT

Hi All. I hope you enjoyed the long weekend and that you had some sunshine.

This time the theme at Try It On Tuesday is Feminine and Fancy so do join in with your take on the chosen subject-can't wait to see your makes.

I made this book card

This is the template I used for my card. A big thank you to the person who created it I have used it often.

First of all I cut out the book shape and then I painted the outside with some plum coloured emulsion paint. I buy the little samples pots to use on craft projects and there are some amazing colours to chose from.

I added some paper, lace and a piece from a bling bracelet. This made the background for my geckogalz image and a flower made from shapes in my bits and bobs drawer. Added peel offs to finish it off. I haven't bought any peel-offs for years but still have lots to use up so fit them in when ever possible.

I lined the inside with a striped paper so it looks like book pages at the top of the card.

Thank you for dropping by Jumbled Crafts and I am looking forward to seeing what you make for the challenge.

Love Chrissie x
