A Home...


for my moos. I have been storing them in with my ATCs up until now and they kept falling out of the album pockets. But after finding a couple of challenges that were 'home' and 'moo' themed thought it was about time I made my moos their own home! I used these blank study cards and as the card was a bit thin decided that acrylic paint would be good to cover the cards.

 
I did an epic Gelli printing session. I managed to fit about 12 cards onto the plate and so covering 40 cards front and back became a little easier! 

 
I couldn't resist even though it was time consuming did some stamping and also inked all the edges of the cards. To finish off I coloured up some ribbon to match the project and also painted a heart frame embellishment to finish of my mini moo book. All the moos I have received from swaps and some I made myself got stuck inside the book. 




I designed this project with the following challenges in mind:
A Colorful Journey: June Gelli Plate Party
Moo Mania: Home
Our Creative Corner: Recipe
ABC challenge: Open
Craft Friends: Anything Goes!
