Mini Blueprint Stamps Book

As you will know from my post below,
I was off work over a week quite poorly.
Obviously the only way for me to recover right was a present!
I got a Get Well Soon from Me to Me present (or two!)
I bought two sets of the brand new Stampers Anonymous
Tim Holtz Mini Blueprint stamps Sets 3 & 4 :0)
This is the mini book I made using them & a few other stamps.
Materials list at the end if you are interested.

Book constructed from one large tag which was cut on Silhouette Cameo
to the same dimensions of
Tim Holtz Size #12 Tag.
Distress inks used;
Seedless Preserves/Broken China/ Antique Linen
I saw these colours used by Hels Sheridan, but she used Distress Paint.
I figured the colours are the same it should work.
I quite like the result a bit like raspberry ripple ice cream
but with a spot of blueberry juice!
All images were coloured with ordinary pencil crayons
then painted over with PVA glue to protect against colouration.
I then used the wrinkle free technique. The quotes were stamped straight
onto inked backgrounds
Book based loosely on one in CS March 2013 by Kaz Hall.
