Good morning folks, my project today is a little domino book made using Stampbord and this month's gorgeous new stamps from Chocolate Baroque. I've used stamps from Hocus Pocus and Put a Spell on You, you can find both sets here and even better they are on special offer too!
I began by taking two Stampbord dominos (you can find them here) and applied Distress Inks in Seedless Preserves, Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Pain randomly with cut and dry foam. I stamped the images and added colour with Derwent Colorsoft pencils before triple embossing with clear embossing powder. I used a gold krylon pen to edge the stampbord.
Next I cut a strip of white card from a 12x12 sheet and used my Stampbord to mark the size so that it was just a couple of millimetres smaller than the domino. I coloured the card with the same colours of distress ink and got busy stamping lots of different images from the new stamp sheets and again coloured with my pencils, adding a few white highlights here and there.
Tip: use a little diluted bleach to remove colour from areas you want to be white and if you need to go over the area with a white pen.
I scored the card strip at 1" intervals and concertina folded it all before attaching the covers. Don't forget to add the ribbon to fasten the little book before you attach the covers to the strip.
Here's another pic of the cover
