My Little Book of Love by Gemma

I have created a little accordion book to share with you all today. I love how cute and colourful it turned out with those little splashes of orange against the red, and it had so much space inside for little pictures and messages for the special person in my life. 

How to

1- Spread Distress Oxides on your craft mat and spray with water
2- Press a large sheet of cardstock into the ink puddles. Drying between layers keep going until the card is mostly covered and you are happy with the look.

3- Using the same colours stamp over the top with different stamps and stencils.

4- Add extra details by stamping over the top with black and white acrylic paints.

5- Cut the cardstock into strips and score them to create the valley and mountain folds, and glue them together.

6- Cut two pieces of kraft card for the front and back covers and ink the edges
7- Decorate the covers by cutting white card to fit the covers and inking them with Distress Oxides.

8- Stamp some hearts onto leftover bits from the large sheet of cardstock you created for the inside and cut them out
9- Stamp out some text on kraft card and then glue all the elements together, add some string for the closure.
