Simon Says Stamp & Show your... Ephemera

Good Morning!!! I hope you had a fabulous weekend and ready for this week's theme...


 at

is
Ephemera...
 "a class of collectable items not originally intended to last for more than a short time, such as tickets, posters, postcards, or labels..."


I was inspired to create a vintage box frame, I painted the box with cranberry paint dabber first, it dries so quickly! Then I adorned the front with handmade grungepaper roses, all inked with Victorian velvet distress inks... phew!!!


So, it's was time for the box to be filled, with a collection of ephemera, a few goodies created using Tim's Pappillon stamps for the butterfly and background.


For the ticket's and the postcard, It's a little tricky to see I have also included some real dried pressed flowers. Courtesy of my mum thank you :) Then Finished it off with a shimmering of Heirloom gold. YUM!!!

Hope it inspires and why not pop round the rest of the team to see their fabulous ephemera!!!
