For my Guest DT project at AALL & Create this week I have made a mini book featuring the beautiful vintage stamps by Tracy Evans. I have added lace, pearls and embroidery floss as embellishments. I also did some wonky hand and machine stitching.
Here is the front cover. Washi tape, lace and ribbon trim, pearls and stencilled sparkle paste add texture nd dimension throughout the booklet. The book closes with some ribbon trim toed in a bow:
The pages were mounted onto black card. Fussy cut focal images were adhered on top of the stamped images to add contrast:
I added cross stitches over the sentiment and wonky hand stitching holding the lace in position. The buttons have embroidery thread stitched threw the holes and the bobbin has thread wound around it. The scissors and thimble are coated with glossy accents.
Fussy cut images are placed on top of stamped images. Scissors and thimble are cut from coloured card and clear embossed.
I made the backgrounds by smooshing, dabbing and dipping white card into Distress Oxides:
