I began by making my own pattered paper. I used several different coloured ink refills in spray bottles with a little water. I wanted more colours than I have spray bottles for, so I dropped drops of food dye onto the paper. I left this all to dry overnight before  I cut a small piece to use on my card. Miss E (17) thought the process was interesting and took some pictures to show her friends. When Miss A (8) saw the paper in the morning she asked when could we make some more.  I think this is an outside activity with an 8 year old. If the weather holds we might just have a go at this. Miss S and Miss A have been busy covering old jam jars with scoobies (long plastic tubes – they were really popular a few years back) they plan to give them to their friends and keep a couple for trinkets (junk?) in their rooms.  I now have the job of die cutting some fabric to cover the lids. It is clearing out some unloved crafty supplies.

Anyway once I had my paper I layered my piece onto some card stock from my stash. The sentiment is from Annabelle Stamps Boy’s Party and Cuts by design dies. I finished the card off with a couple of jewels from Kaisercraft Miss Nelly collection.
