Ah, yes, my titles still leave a lot to be desired but! I am back again with another piece made using those fabby Distress Co-reDinations card. I used the Wild Honey and Barn Door sheets to make covers for a little book I have just put together. Ooo and before I forget... Co-reDinations are on special offer for this month... so you can grab yourself a bargain HERE.

I started by cutting the card to fit the covers and then embossed using Texture Fades... the retro circles have to be my fave! I used Tim's Sanding Grip and gently rubbed over the surface of the card, removing the colour on the raised bits, leaving the paler colour showing underneath.

I used Wild Honey and Barn Door Distress Stain to colour some card, stamped my words in Black Archival and then matted these onto some more of the cardstock. I used a black Dabber to whizz around the edges to close the whole design in.

Finally I decorated the book cover with some little Faux Porcelain flowers - making these is simples... fill up your Melt Pot with clear UTEE and once it is melted, carefully dip your flowers into the UTEE, allow to go hard on a craft sheet and then you can use them on all different kinds of projects. I used a couple of Idea-ology bits and bobs to decorate the book rings and that was my book finished!

Thanks for looking... TTFN
