Little Oriental Book






The 7th February is my good friend Denize's birthday. I wanted to make something special for her so I made this little oriental book. I started with some fabby papers and 2 pieces of 2" by 2" stamp board. I used ultra thick embossing powder mixed with some black embossing power and did about 3 layers on each piece of stamp board, this was quite difficult because it takes the stamp board a while to heat up and the power blows everywhere! Anyway on the last layer I added some gold power and while it was still hot inked up an oriental stamp with red stazon and stamped in to the powder. I painted up some chipboard letters in her initials using gold paint and stamped over them used the red stazon, added them to the covers along with some words which I dabbed with inks. For the pages I folded some beautiful papers and added embelishments to them. I then added a beautiful clasp to finish off the book. I am so pleased with it I hope she likes it. I have also made some other bits for her..........
