Hip Hop Thursday - SOME CARDS!

Welcome to this stop on the UNITY HIP HOP for April 21, 2011.

Today's CARD Thoughts:
I thought I would share with you some cards that I made, the first, stamping on painted denim, and the second, stamping on an inky envelope. 

Project Tip (Especially for Publication):
When you finish your project, think about adding little elements to make it different and stand out.  Little add-ons include eyelets, brads, cord, ribbon, paints or ink, stitching (hand or machine), little gems.

(add on was cotton waxed cord)

(add-on was little gems on the envelope and seam binding)
