Crafty Individuals ~ Summer Ball


Good morning on another dreary summers day LOL! I meant to blog this a while ago. The current challenge at Crafty Individuals is a Summers Ball. I made a small clutch purse. The necklace and perfume bottle were made for Craftstamper and appeared in the June issue.

The purse is actually made of wood but has a flexible flap, It is painted with matt emulsion, distress inks and inktense pencils. CI stamp used is CI - 341.


I'd like to welcome my new followers and a big thank you for all the kind and encouraging comments you are leaving, very much appreciated.

Happy Crafting. xx

Beautiful colours on these Paula and a different take on 'Summer Ball'. I wasn't sure if I had the stamps to join in on this one but you have got me thinking in a different direction - thanks for that.

Absolutely beautiful purse Paula. Love the stamping and pretty embellishing.
A very dreary wet and also cold day here too and hope Summer makes an appearance soon as I don't know about you but I'm fed up with wearing my woollies!
Hugs, Fliss xx
PS: I received an order from Malcolm and Jean yesterday and found to my surprise and delight that they'd enclosed a tote bag as they were late sending it out - how lovely is that!

Paula, These really are "pretty in pink." Love those stamped perfume bottles on the purse and the necklace and perfume bottle are wonderful! So many lovely images and embellishments! Beautiful! Yes, I did cut the stamps from foam (mounted on thin cling foam) using Alterations dies! Have a great day!

Another wonderful set Paula, I saw the bottle in Craft Stamper and loved it, but it really looks amazing when you see it all together like this! Love those stamps and was lucky enough to be given them by a friend, must use them more often....

Hello Paula
What an absolutely stunning creation, the Palette just sings to me it is so adorable, I just want to pick it up and run my fingers all over and examine every little detail in case I miss something, your lace flower trim with the beautiful button finishes it off perfectly. It is just delightful.
