Show some Distressing!

Good Morning!!! It's Monday already? so, let me bring you on the theme at...


Stamp and show some distressing!

Inspired by Wendy's fabulous stamp set I just had to create an art binder using creative-covers collaged with old book pages applied with Claudine Helmuth's Matte Medium, covered with gesso. Stamped book cover stamp with distress ink and distress embossing. I have secured ring binder inside, then stamped and adhered some sticky back canvas to the spine.


You may have noticed the Tattered florals flower is from my little tutorial the other day. (and for those who asked I use a bigshot for my die cutting...) I then adorned flower with leaf art part painted with crackle paint


I then added letters using shrink plastic, paint dabber on the back and added glossy accents on top.
I do intend to add pages with dividers and inspiring quotes. It's been such a wonderful weekend and today we're off to the seaside!

Hope it inspires and why not pop round to the rest of the team!!!

Wow and wow, Kim! I love this binder you created. I have not seen that wonderful book cover stamp, but thanks to you, I just added it to my wish list over at SSSS! Love the colors you chose to work with and the way you used the sticky back canvas for the spine. Awesome work on this week's challenge!

Have a great week.

Hugs,
Linda
