Fashionable Femmes

Did you get a MailBox Muse Kit
This quarter the theme is 
"Fringe & Fedoras -Gatsby"

Everything is 20's
A time of fabulous fashions!
To create my Fashionable Femmes card I used my Niji Waterbrush to give the papers a watercolor wash. 
With the Niji Waterbrush I was able to get soft pastel colors from the Faber Castell Gelatos.  On my craft mat I rubbed a little color from the Faber Castell Gelatos.  Then with the Niji Waterbrush picked up the color and painted the frame on my card.  Also add color to the background pattern paper.
A little Wink of Stella was added to the frame.  "Fashionable Femmes" is a rubber stamp that came on the sheet of stamps in the MailBox Muse Kit!
Supplies from the MailBox Muse Kit:
All Papers and images (except black cardstock)
Card base
Stamp "Fashionable Femmes"

Supplies from Altered Pages

What is so great about getting the kit is it comes with so much you can create projects right out of the box.  All you have to do is add adhesive and tools.  The kit even includes a booklet with projects ideas to create if you like.

Check out how to order your kit at the MailBox Muse!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
