A little more texture on the top right:
Ok, on to my project. The next step was to add some colour with Distress Paints, colours listed below.
Below is a close up where you can see how by adding a bit more paint with your fingers you can blend the tissue seamlessly into the background:
By now I folded the paper in half length wise as that is how it would fit around the envelopes. I also added some more stamping and stenciling:
Now for the inside, I decided to use the actual Wallflower papers for that. First I lined the inside of the envelopes, by measuring carefully and cutting the angles to help slide the paper inside the envelopes:
Next I took another envelope and cut it apart to create a template to line around the opening of the envelopes, you'll see in a moment what I mean:
I used this template to cut two other bits of the wallflower papers, but not before having added some more texture with one of the Texture Fades embossing folders. Below you will see it all glued in place:
As you can see, I also added a little more stenciling..
To add the cover to the outside of the envelopes, I first added a bit of dyed seam binding to each side to be able to tie my folder shut and then simply glued the cover around the outside of the envelopes:
Now onto the tags: I used two #10 Manila tags and trimmed about 1 cm from the bottom so they could fit comfotably inside the envelopes. Here is the first one:
I used the same techniques as on the front cover but only used Distress Inks for the backgrounds. The vocal images on both tags are from the Found Relatives cards. Here is a close up of a steampunk charm I added to the top:
And here is the second tag:
And a closeup of the top, the sentiment on the little banner is from the Donna Downey Empowered Words set.
And here you can see how both tags fit snugly inside the little folder:
Well, that's it, well done if you are still with me and I hope I made it all more or less clear....
