I thought I would use these small purses to make a couple of gifts. As they are quite small I decided to limit the stamping as I have a habit of going OTT. I gave the purses three coats of gesso as the surface is not the easiest to stamp on. I used the lovely Ophelia stamp from The stampsmith on the pink purse and used the same image on the back. The photo stamps used on the second purse are from kreativhobby. I used black archival ink and shaded with watercolours, then tinted the edges with a few dewdrop chalk inks. Then coated with glue n seal. I added organza ribbon roses and some tea dyed lace and pearls. Apologises about the photos having to hang on till christmas for a new camera so until then using my trusty iphone, which unfortunately does not have the best camera!
I have been asked where I bought these purses, unfortunately it is from a local garden centre, I have looked online but can't seem to find any where that stocks them.
