Tone on Tone


Over on the PA Blog Ellen Vargo is back with her wonderful backgrounds. For her first project of the week she has altered a manilla folder which you can see here. As I don't really use manilla folders I just did pretty much the same thing but on pieces of card.


As she used her new stamp sets which I haven't got yet, I had to improvise.


I also didn't want to put the tissue paper on as I had a different project in mind for them.


Used small bubble wrap as one of the improvises.


A free circles stamp we got at the workshop in Paris.


Large bubble wrap which stamped out really well.


Both sizes of bubble on this one along with some of Ellens stamps from the other sets.


Close up of the large bubble.


New circles stamp from Paris on this one, again more of Ellens stamps and a Sarah Naumann stamp.


Sarah Naumann script text added in black stazon to replace the tissue in Ellens original post.


And this is what I did with them using my WRMK envelope punch board.

These are awesome Sam with some brilliant improvising! Fab colours and the bubblewrap works so well. I have to say although I'm not a fan of the abstract stamps I really like the new circles set from Ellen and think they might have to be added to my stash at some point.

Hugs
