Hello again Friends,
Welcome to my new follower...thank you so much for choosing to join my tiny part of this massive, warm-hearted creative part of blog land, I very much appreciate all of you!
As promised earlier I am back with my Sunday Stampers project for this week...this time Hels Sheridan set us the theme of including the word 'Wish' in our projects. I have a confession about this one, it's still a work in progress! I had the idea on Sunday, started it Monday night, then got caught up with all the workshop preparations, plus I've had a lot of commissions land in my email box...so it was a bit of a hurried attempt to get it posted today.
I decided to make a grungy craft wish list book, somewhere to jot down all my craft desires and this what I have come up with so far...
The cover is just a piece of cardboard I had saved in my 'art parts' box, from some packaging. I gave it a quick coat of gesso and after it hd dried inked it with Brush Corduroy and Vintage Photo distress inks. I wanted it to look quite grungy and like a rough piece of wood.
I then inked the printed list with a Studio 490 stamp by Wendy Vecchi and distressed the edges. The typewriter stamp and letters are from a set by Sam Poole. I stamped the letters several times to use on the cover and index sheets. The corner element is a Teresa Collins Stamp. I stamped everything with clear embossing ink, fixed with clear embossing powder.
You can't really see it in the photo, but I did use a Cog Mask and put it through the Grand Calibur, the result is quite faint but does add another tactile element to the card.
The flower and butterfly were in my box of die-cuts I'd already made and not used and the little button is something I made from salt dough after watchin Ali Reeve on TV a few weeks ago! I coloured it with Promarkers.
I wanted the cover to me a mix of all crafty items I love using..so we have stamping, Spellbinders, embossing, distress inks, masks and I had to get the Promarkers in there somewhere! I need to add more pages and index titles, but this was a fun little project!
Thanks for stopping by!
