A bit of a book

It's my youngest DDs birthday in just over a week, so I decided to have a play with my BIA and make her a note book.
I blended some brushed corduroy, aged mahogany and a little bit of walnut stain DI all over a bamboo spine cover-all, then I stamped a Crafty Individuals flourish with versamark on the top left and bottom right from corners and brushed on some antique gold perfect pearls.  I used a Basic Grey bling-it-on on the top right, then I blended some more brushed corduroy on the chipboard letters then spritzed them with golden fish cosmic shimmer mist.  The crown is a Maya Road chipboard one that I have covered with gilding flakes in yellow and rose gold then added some prima gems.  The heart is chipboard triple embossed with clear UTEE with some cosmic shimmer powders sprinkled in the last layer, then I pressed in a text stamp on to it all while it was still hot.

I put some more gilding flakes on the knobbly bits on the spine so it sort of looks like faded gold tooling on an antique leather book (well, sort of!!)

I used some K&Co 6 x 6 papers on the inside and stamped a Wendy Vecchi sentiment embossed with gold.

Happy Easter bloggers!
