I have used one of Crafty Individuals Die-Cut mini frames and stamped it with the CI 194 music plate. I then used Tea Dye distress inks to darken it. The image is from one of the people and places mini books and the words 'Fly Free as a Bird' from plate CI-287.
The metal flower was from a necklace I had that was broken!! I had saved it for ages because I knew it would come in for something. I don't think my metal bird is very pretty, bless it, in fact I think its a seagull !! Well I do live in a sea side resort so I guess I can just about get away with that. And to be honest I couldn't find any pretty bird charms in the local shops.
I used the Tea Dye distress ink on all of the the project. I have kept it simple so I can give it as a gift for someone to add photographs and journaling. The album actually stands like a card too, i think it would be lovely in wedding papers, don't you? Oh well . . . . . . that's a project for another day!!!
The 12 x 12 paper is from Graphic 45, Baby 2 Bride collection, and the edge of the album and again on the inside of the pages I used some Core' dinations card stock. I ran this through the cuttlebug and then sanded it back to reveal the lighter colour core. I made the tags with cream card stock, again leaving them plain! Having said that I really wanted to stamp them up, but as I don't know who I'm going to give this to and for what occasion thought better of it.
And the inside, just crying out for some photographs!! Hmmmmmmmmmm perhaps I should keep this one for myself!!
