The Challenge over at Artful Times this time is to use part of a newspaper, magazine or book. I didn't have a chance to make a new card for this challenge and am running out of time but luckily I remembered I didn't do a post for my husband's birthday card from earlier in the year which fits in with the challenge.
Darren loves reading so this large Sheena Douglass stamp was perfect! I stamped with black Versafine and embossed with clear powder then coloured the books with Promarkers and stamped little sentiments on the book spines and added a few little gold hearts. I think I added some gold embossing too here and there. The backgrounds are stamped with a Sheena crackle stamp to age everything along with a bit of distress ink. The hexagons are cut from pages of an old (and falling to bits) crime novel - Darren's favourite style of book. They are cut with sizzix dies and the little wooden hearts are from my stash. The large one was already red and the small ones I coloured with a Promarker.
Please pop over to Artful Times for a peek, it will be well worth it and they would love your support!
Have a lovely evening and thank you so much for visiting! Take care. Christine xxx
