My Trial Wallet



Evening ladies,

Well, I tracked down the magnetic tape so I could finish off my trial wallet here. Now I am confident in the process, I will make another couple. I really like them....probably because they are just that something a little different to the norm.

This wallet features faux stitching...lots of faux stitching (using a glitter gel pen)! I have stamped StampIt Dotty Mesh as the background and Hero Arts A Great Big Hug as the wording on the front of the wallet. Everything was stamped and sponged using Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue.
What do you think?
