Out of the box stampotique

'Allo 'allo!

Urg! Rain rain go away! Seriously. I'm not one to moan about the weather but my patience is being sorely tried. It's beyond a joke now. I'm on holiday in a few weeks and I'd really like it to brighten up by then. Thank you.

Okay, so on to my latest make!

It's a "little clip holder to keep my scraps of super smooth together for testing out pro-marker combinations" phew! that's a bit of a mouthful, if anyone comes up with something a bit pithier do let me know ;)

Essentially it's a clothes peg sandwiched between two die cut labels. Wanna see?

In Situ

I had loads of fun with this, it took a few days to make because I had to think about how I wanted it to look, it didn't quite end up the way I originally intended and *whisper* I think I like the back better than the front!!!

I used stampotique stamps & lots of scraps from the depths of my stash, I also had a go at colouring my own seam binding, it went a bit muddy...

I would like to enter this for the Stampotique "Out of the Box" challenge & the Simon Says Stamp Challenge "Make a label or ATC"

Thanks for looking, hope it's not raining on you too!
