Tag Book

This book I made for a swap I'm involved in "Me to You" and I sent this to my dear friend Claire.

The front and back covers were made using chipboard which I bought from The Artistic Stamper, they are 4" x 6". I used a brayer and a Big and Juicy birthday ink pad to colour the chipboard and then gave them a spray of gold Glimmer Mist. On the front I added a Papermania wire word Friends. I then stamped various stamps using black ink. The back cover was made in the same way and I used one of my new Tim Holtz stamps nibs.


The pages/pockets were made from a piece of A4 card, which I coloured using distress inks in various colours. Before I attached the covers to the concertina pages/pockets I added some blue ribbon so the book could be kept closed.


The tags are again chipboard from The Artistic Stamper. I used various stamps again, stamped in black ink. I then used distress inks and an ink blending tool to colour the tags. I then added some fibres to the tags and they were finished.

I have also entered this into Caardvarks Challenge, which this week is to use scoring
