Envelope album from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning crafty friends, it's weekend at last I'm trying to be organised and blog more regularly. Today's project is  a little album made with the envelope from my calendar, waste not want not as the saying goes lol. The envelope was folded into 3 and that gave me the idea of making a mini album with some of this months' beautiful new releases from Chocolate Baroque. They were released on Hochanda a few days ago but will be available at Chocolate Baroque very soon!!

I cut pieces of white pearlescent card to fit all the sides of the envelope and spritzed them randomly with Dylusions inks. I was quite pleased with the result as I'm quite heavy handed and usually just make a big mess with spray inks lol.

Next I added lots of stamping using versamark and white embossing powder to contrast with the vivid colours of the inks. I used a white pen to add some faux stitching around all the panels and then glued with to my envelope, sandwiching some rainbow ribbon for a closure.

I cut lots of little die cut tags and again added lots of stamping and rainbow ribbon.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

Crafting from the Heart: anything goes
Crafty Creations: Anything goes
House that Stamps Built: Anything but a card
Kitty Bee Designs: Anything goes/something new
The Crafty Addicts: Anything goes
