Altred Slide Mailer
Had a play with a slide mailer this week, it was good to get some time to craft. The front cover of the sllide mailer has a thick coat of viva ferro paint into which I stamped a clock image. Then used a Tim Holtz bookplate and filled with lots of watchy bits. Had some mini grungeboard shapes for the hinges and lock. The inside left has been collaged with vintage dress patterns, onto one pice I stamped the ladies image. The tape measure and saying were stamped onto plain fabric and then coloured with distress inks. Stamped a glass slide with the cog pattern and coloured it with viva precious metal colour, then sealed it in place with more watch parts using glossy accents. On the other side I have used buttons, piece of ribbon and a vintage thimble, which I cut in half. The back cover has embossed metal. Then stamped the cogs on a different colour and embossed and cut them out and then stuck on. Added a vintage key to the front as a charm.
