UNIVERSE inchie and some ephemera

The Every Inchie Monday challenge for this week was "UNIVERSE". I could really think of anything outside the box really, so had to go with the obvious.

I had some bits left over from a tag I had made last year for tag tuesday challenge, ( circles ) and they came in quite handy for this inchie. The background is a photograph of a nebula, errmm, I think, can't remember what it was, and I cut a piece of an image I had of our beautiful planet and stuck it on. I used tiny tiny gold and silver micro beads for lots of star systems etc.



------------------

Can't just stop here, lol, thats far too short a post for me. Instead, I'll show you a few pieces of lovely American ephemera I got from a lovely Etsy seller -


A whole bunch of vintage Holden, Plaid and and Top Value stamps-


1940s prescriptions -


and ration slips -


Fascinating.

They came from this lovely shop - http://www.etsy.com/shop/58andGrace.

Maybe tomorow I'll be in the mood for some proper crafting. We'll see, it would be rather nice if my muse decided to come back from her holiday.

Until then, toodlepip xxx
