Despite planning to spend time making Christmas cards I got distracted by a few of the challenges around and ended up altering a notebook with some very hot sunny colours –
After a coating of Spun Sugar Distress stain I used a Tim Holtz mask and Distress inks on the background paper – moving the mask and layering the colours till I was happy. My intention was then to add a few delicate sprays of Cosmic Shimmer (Lava Red) but thanks to a clogged nozzle ended up with blobs – I decided they looked like ink splots though which fits so I didn’t have too much of a paddy! I stamped over with Judikins Italian script stamp (love this stamp!) .
Then used baby wipes I had mopped up my ink with to make flowers (with the help of the Tattered Floral Die), added a Nestie label, some tissue tape and glassine paper flourishes and there we have it. Trouble is once I’ve altered a notebook I don’t like to use it so this will probably join a couple of others on the shelf looking pretty !
