Hello everyone and thank you for visiting. Astrid here with my second project for April.
Well, before seeing Emma's project two days ago I decided to share a cover of an album I created, using the wonderful new stamp sets by Katie Fox. So, yet another album I'm afraid......
Here is a list of all the products I used:
Katie Fox Stamps Stitch in Time & Carte Postale
Distress Paints in Bundled Sage, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire
Distress InksVintage Photo, Antique Linen
Archival Ink Jet Black
Graphics 45 French Country Collection 8 x 8 papers
and from my stash: Vintage lace, corrugated card, Kraft Card, flowers and ribbon, Sissix Alterations Tattered Banners die, Book rings.
The background to the cover of this little album was created with Distress Paints liberally spritzst with water to mix the colours. The edges were darkened with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Next I stamped the elements I wanted to use either on white card (the postcard stamp) or on one of the Graphics 45 papers (the various elements from the Stitch in Time set) in Jet Black Archival Ink and cut them out. The Sentiment was stamped on part of a Tattered Banners die. I wound some vintage lace around the little bobbin and added a little flower. I also fussy cut some elements from the G 45 papers to decorate further.
Here are some close ups:
Well, hope you like it and see you next time!
