Kraft Trinchie Book

Been busy with this project over the last couple of days. Made a Trinchie (3" x 3") book using Kraft cardstock. Layered up tissue tape, stamped with acrylic paint and then spritzed with Peach Delight Glimmer Mist first:

Then came a few layers of stamping with a mixed of Timber Brown and Rusty Orange Staz on ink, I also did some Versamark stamping and embossed with some copper embossing powder.

I added more shiny and texture using some gilding flakes and sepia accents. Then came more stamping of insects and a bit of light colouring using pencil crayons. My quote was printed and I then triple embossed it with clear powder is created an almost wood veneer look. My book was all finished off with different lengths of cord/threads and I even used a couple of heart charms which came with ordered from Art from the Heart.


I have designed this trinchie book with the following challenges in mind:
Our Creative Corner: Anything Goes
ALBC: Kraft it!
Stamping Sensation: Embossing and Texture
