Old Leather Music Book

Continuing on the theme of the new stamps released over at Chocolate Baroque this week, I have made a sample with the 'Music Fanfare' stamp set this time.

I wanted to make my project look like a tooled leather book, and after some thought, set about spraying some cheap photo copy paper with Adirondack spray inks, until I achieved the desired colour. I used Cranberry and Red Pepper. I cut three hearts from chipboard, using the heart music stamp as a template, and stuck these to my main piece of chipboard, before sticking the sprayed paper down. I pressed around the hearts, and the paper was soft enough to settle around them. I coloured the edges of the paper with Black Soot Distress Ink.

I created a central focal point with mount board, stamping one of the lovely music images with Versafine Ink, and triple embossing the oval. I worked out where it was going to go on my project, and stamped some leaves in Black Stazon to create a frame around the oval. Finally, I added hinges and a lock created with grungepaper, and coloured with Black Soot DI.

I'll have another project for you tomorrow, using the chess stamps again. Don't forget to keep checking over on the Design Team Blog for more samples there from myself and my team mates. A sample that I made using the 'Music Fanfare' set is now showing on the DT Blog.
For details on how I made this card, please pop over to the Design Team Blog to take a look.

I'll be back later today with my Forgotten Friday post, see you then!

Thanks for stopping by, xx

Hi Judith!

Didn't buy this stamps set as I don't think I'd get my use out of it but the 2 cards you've created are beautiful!

Two beautiful cards Judith, I like both of the new sets, but I think that the music one is my favorite. I'm sure they will be in my basket by next week.

I loved the faux leather book project when you first created it Judith and still think it's fabulous. It's very effective and realistic looking.

The second card too is a beauty and very feminine and softly coloured.
