Pretty Shabby don't you think?
Picked this little book up in the bargain bin at some craft show or other. Opened it up yesterday and decorated the front. Nick Bantock inks worked onto the base then some words stamped and heat embossed. Next some lace down one side with net roll flowers over the top. The Gibson Lady Painter is a new stamp from Flonz in New Zealand, first try out of their stamps here on Papyrus with more NB inks and some Moon Glow 2 tone ep sprinkled over parts of it. Papyrus does not take heat well and warps, the warping allowed me to raise the image in the middle while sticking it flat at the ends. Some more stamping a dreamweaver hat pin self adhesive gems a metal butterfly that has been in the draw for 15 or more years (see everything has its turn eventually LOL) and some paperflowers hiding a bit of a mistake.
Altering things like this is so satisfying and great fun, finding things to alter much more exciting than shopping for shoes!
