If I hear these words once again I swear I'm going to sell my family on e-bay!! Actually I don't know what I'm going to do with it, but I like it anyway :o)
This is my entry to this fortnight's Stampotique challenge, which is to use book/newspaper.
I remembered an article by Rachel Jackson in April's Craft Stamper (sorry I can't find a link) and decided to give it a try.
The book was painted white then the hole cut. The pages were torn away and the edges painted and distressed with Brushed Corduroy DI.. The tissue paper covering is by 7 Gypsies, and I've overstamped it with Stampotique Butterfly and Papillon stamps. This was then covered with beeswax. I've finally gotten to grips with this, I turned up the heat on my melt pot and it went on perfectly.
I've stamped the butterfly again twice and attached to the inside.
The die cut butterflies bottom right have been cut with the TH die and dipped in the bees wax.
I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp & Show challenge as this week it's distressed.
Thanks very much for looking x
