SDC 33 and Stampotique Blog hop

The new challenge at Stampotique Designers challenge is up and they are also hosting a blog hop. I was so excited to see that that my last entry was chosen as a SDC favourite by Joanne . You can view it here. Now the new challenge is "To use your scraps" so that is what I did and made this little purse. If your scroll down you can see my pile of scraps I used. It is also a Stampotique stamps only challenge. Below is a picture of the inside of the purse.
And here is my pile of scraps. I started with some inky paper towels(used for cleaning up my spray inks), A scrap piece of G45 seahorse paper, , Prima gem left overs, leftover snaps from the baptism outfit I made, bubble wrap, fiber scraps and grungeboard scraps. I also used the Stampotique mermaid stamp, wire and some pearl pins.
( I did not use the Stampotique crafter stamp as planned or the white satin leftovers)


First I took the Grungeboard scrap(it was scored at both ends about an inch in form a previous leftover project)and I glued on the inky paper towel.

I then cut a piece of the G45 scrap paper and glued on the back of the grungeboard piece inside the score lines.

Next I stamped the mermaid on the paper towel side and filled in with a opaque white pen.
Once dry I coated it with a glossy coat. The snap is then put in place on the back and the purse folded into position. Then the sides are glued into place with extra paper towel scraps and the beads are added around the front and back along with some stamping with the bubble wrap and glossy accents. The handle is made by twisting more paper towel scraps around a wire and gluing into place. Finally I added the pins, gems around the handle bottoms and fiber scraps.
and here is another shot of the purse. I am entering this into the SDC33 challenge. Now I am off to follow the SDC blog hop. Don't forget I am offering some fun blog candy which you can get information on here.
thanks for stopping in and have a great day. Angela
