Totally Papercrafts ,,,, Holidays Challenge

Hi all :-) I hope the sun is shining brightly wherever you are cos ,,, We’re all going on a Summer Holiday tra la la ,, we’re going where the seeeea is blue ,,, fun and laughter on our summer holiday ,,,, are you singing along ?? :-)

It is Cathy’s turn to choose the theme this week and she chose

HOLIDAYS ,, any holiday is OK ,, can even be Chrristmas ! :-)

We are sponsored by Karen’s Doodles so some fab digi images on offer this week.

I decided to make a Passport Holder for Amy ,,, don’t think she will use it but I had fun making it :-) I started with a piece of Grungepaper and inked it with Barn door distress ink, I then run it through my big shot using a Tim Holtz Burlap folder and then sprayed it well with Pearl Glimmer mist. When it was dry I stamped various TH stamps with black ink which you can barely see now !! I stamped a Unity Postcard onto Sticky Back Canvas and inked it all with Vintage Photo ink. The Eiffel tower is from a Penny Black clear set and the Wish you were here is from a Simon Says Stamp exclusives set. I made a canvas ticket using a Tim Holtz ticket die and stamps from the Odds and Ends 101 set and added a flower made using a TH Tattered Florals flower die and a Graphic 45 chipboard button, I sewed the edges and added eyelets to the corners.

If Amy knew I was posting this photo she would go mad !! She was 8 years old here ,, awww Smile

This is A-mazing, Lols. I just love it. The texture really makes it look great and those postage mark stamps are brilliant.
Now, I NEED some sticky back canvas :-)
