Sunday Stampers Challenge "Lost in France"


Hi everyone. This week the theme was "Lost in France" I decided to do something a little bit different. I love the Sunday Stampers challenge and have been putting my tags together with a book ring. This time thought I would make a book and each week decorate a page with the weekly theme. Started with the cover. Have painted a 7 gypsies book with Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber "Pool" then inked edges with black inkpad. Spritzed on some glimmer mist butterscotch to give slight gold tinge and did use little bit of turquoise glitter for a bit of glam. Coloured 2 x 2" pieces of stampbord in blue colorbox inkpads with slight tinge of mauve around edges -doesnt show very clear in scan. Then stamped Tuscan Rose image in black Archival inkpad on stampbord and inked edges of stampbord in black as well. One part of the stamp has Paris on it and stamped this on piece of card after colouring it with blue inkpad. Cut this out and mounted on book and added glossy accents to highlight it. Added some 7 gypsies rub ons and a handle. Finished off with some blue toned fibres. Hope to add another page next week.
