A little bit of Klimt!

Back in the land of the blogging! Not a lot of time for crafting at the moment unfortunately, but I have managed to make another little box. I have been lusting after some Cherry Pie Klimt stamps but I haven't managed to get them yet so the next best thing was some rather nice tissues I spotted whilst in the shop at the Fitzwilliam museum in Cambridge. It would be great if they did a mixed pack of printed tissues as you only need one or two of the same design so I will now have to make lots of Klimt style projects.

I was inspired to have a go at tissue decoupage after seeing Helen Chilton's article in a recent copy of Craftstamper. I painted the box with some matt emulsion then tore out the images and pasted them on with some PVA glue. I randomly stamped with a harlequin stamp and a swirl stamp. A touch of varnish and some inca gold, and my favourite krylon pen to finish.

I recently bought a lovely stamp from Magenta ' Papillon Post' and decided to use it on a anniversary card for my sister!

The other stamps I used on this card are the Tim Holtz Papillon set.

Short and sweet today folks!

Happy Crafting & a big thank you for all your lovely comments! XX
