I made this frame some weeks ago but hadn't got around to putting anything in it. I covered a cheap frame with cog and propeller die cuts, then covered it with aluminium tape. Definitely something I will try again!
The stamp is a Paper Artsy one, which I stamped onto Steampunk Debutante cog paper then stamped the words on white and cut them out. The beautiful car stamp is from an Elusive Images set called Edwardian Gentlemen which was a birthday present from Jack. I finished it off with a zip flower which I made ages ago and then realized I had no idea what I intended to use it for!!
Thank you so much for the encouraging comments on the vintage bag. I am feeling very low today. I have been poorly all week and have had to pull out of the party tonight for John and Nic's 50th birthdays, where I was going to give Nic the bag. I am getting so fed up with my health problems. It takes the shine off the good things, and makes the bad things harder to cope with. I am going to try to pull myself together now and tidy up the mess I have made this week with my crafting - I don't think the mess is helping my mood! Thanks again for always being so supportive.
