Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 19 August 2016

 Here is my weekly inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog. 

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "LET'S GO NEUTRAL" ie white, cream, browns or greys.

This week the Design Team have the topic of "anything goes".
 As you can see I have made a Pocket Letter.  I love making these.

I have used the images called "Petals of Rainbow", "Enter the Woods", "Hello Magnolia" and "Come Softly".  I have coloured the images in with Promarkers and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz's Victorian Velvet distress ink.

I have used various stamps for the remaining pocket letter fronts.

The two butterflies in the front are metal butterflies which I have coloured with alcohol inks and once dry I rubbed over some Stickles glitter glue.

The two butterflies at the bottom are made of acetate.  I have coloured the acetate with the same alcohol inks as the metal butterflies, then I have cut the butterflies out, added some Stickles glitter glue and adhered to the front of the pocket letter for something different.
 Here are the envelopes on the back.  They include ribbon, confetti, pearls, a rubber stamp, gems, fabric butterflies, die-cuts, sequins and the all important letter.
