Stampman Challenge - Favourite Technique

Warning: Photo heavy!!
This is my entry for the Stampman Challenge, Favourite Technique. I have three actual favourites, the main one making wrinkle free distress ink backgrounds, but these go hand in hand with stamping & bleaching. As my blog name suggests I am a minibook maker, although to be fair there are over 18 books that will never be seen on this blog because they were made many years ago before I even thought about running a blog & sadly, lost all the images when my computer died! Anyway this is the front cover of the mini & the following pages are the inside. Materials listed at the end.

Pages were made using thin card from an empty tea bag box.
Distress inks used: NEW Spring set; Dusty Concord; Tumbled Glass; Broken China;
Spun Sugar; Mustard Seed; Pine Needles; Shabby Shutters.
Stamps are a mixture of Tim Holtz sets & Studio G.
Computer generated words for front cover & pages 3, 4, 6, 7 & 10.
Secret Garden embossing folder, Heart die & fancy frames both Papermania/Xcut
Bleach. Bind it All. Scraps of ric rak & glitter paint.

Hi Paula, thanks so much for your lovely comments recently! We did have a lovely holiday and coming back to the rain wasn't much fun!

This book is so sweet and gorgeous! There's a tremendous amount of work in it which I find really impressive. I've often thought of getting one of those binders as things like this are lovely to make for people - so different to a card. Another item to add to the 'want list'!

I've got some of the same stamps but you have others which are gorgeous. Are the little ducks stamped? They are so pretty.

Please drop by again and will certainly be back!

Thanks so much for sharing it with us at The Stampman this time.
