Birthday Book

Here is a birthday book I made for my sister. I have used the tutorial by Jill, my team mate at Ellephantasic. The image is a Mabel Lucie Attwell one called Walkies, by The Artistic Stamper.

I started by covering the covers with paper and I then edged them with distress ink (Spice Marmalade). I then took a piece of kitchen towel and used re-inkers in spice marmalade to soak in to the kitchen towel. I then covered it with clear embossing powder. I added the sheet to the covers and cover that with glossy accents. I then added the image, stamped around the covers. The stamps and sentiment are by Hels Sheridan.

I then added the flowers, leaves and ribbons and fibres. I also popped on some distress stickels.

Thank you for looking!
