Just testing

Hi there.
Well I can't share what I am busy with at the moment because I'm not finished. (Why does work always get in the way? Oh, yes I know why, to pay for stash!) Anyway, I thought that I would just post a pic of the stuff I made yesterday while I tested my new recycled ink palette. Not sure what they will end up as in the end, probably book covers                                                                             

I used some acetate packaging from the sizzix folder I received from Brenda the other day to create two little shakers. Stamped with black stazon and coloured with alcohol inks on the reverse. The frames were inked and stamped in frayed burlap, forest moss and aged mahogony. I like the elephant more that the other one if I'm honest, but I was just playing around so they did kinda just evolve!

Anyway, hope you have had a better saturday than me and have done some crafting!
Be blessed.

I think they both look great - love the elephant for sure, but I think the abstract one is gorgeous.
