Book cover

This weeks challenge over at Try it on Tuesdays
is to 'Alter it and add texture'.

 I decided to make a cover for a 'fat page book'
4 x 4 inches
The embossed layers were all stamped with a variety of stamps before going through the Bigshot and brayer. The colouring is weathered wood, and bundled sage
distress inks.

The central shape was triple embossed and sprinkled with mica powder,
 I pressed in the daisy stamp quickly before the whole thing set hard.

Here is the finished book, ready hold my calendar swap pages as I get them each month.
Please pop over and see what my DT mates have made this time, and  see all the challenge details. We hope you will  join us .

Thankyou for stopping by I realy appreciate your comments
