For the inside of the pocket flap I used distress inks to colour a piece of white card and then when this was dry I printed the start of "Sing a song of sixpence" onto it. I then mounted it onto a piece of black card.

Coining It In
This weeks In My Pocket Challenge over on Hels blog is "Coining it in". For this weeks challenge you have to use a coin in your pocket. I had a few thoughts for this challenge and I came up with the idea of the nursery rhyme Sing a Song of Sixpence.
I used Crafty Individuals music papers on the outside of the front flap and also on the inside of the pocket. I stamped a Paper Artsy stamp onto a piece of card and then coloured it in using watercolour pencils - I then went around the edge of the image with a gold krylon pen. I stamped a Cats Life crown stamp in gold and cut it out and put it onto the boy's head. I mounted this image onto the front flap.
For the inside of the pocket, I stamped the bird from Stitchels stamps set directly onto the music paper and then stamped it again onto some vellum. I coloured the bird with a black watercolour pencil and then cut it out and popped it on top of the stamped one. The pie is a clip art which I printed, cut out and then coloured with watercolour pencils. As the sixpence piece has been out of circulation for many years, I improvised and used a 5 pence coin.
