My page for the envelope book





Craft Swap Forum celebrates it's second birthday this month. To mark the occasion some of the members are making pages for envelope books which will be auctioned to raise money for The Lymphoma Association. My team were given the theme of Nature. I have used a set of Tim Holtz stamps and Distress Inks. Firstly I covered the entire envelope with Old Paper then stamped the flowers in both Walnut Stain and Aged Mahogany. I took a small piece of mountboard, coloured it with Old Paper and stamped the bird in Aged Mahogany. I then embossed the image with clear embossing powder and glued the mountboard to the front of the envelope. For the insert I covered the card with Aged Mahogany, which I blended with a damp baby wipe. I stamped more flowers randomly and then stamped the sentiment in Walnut Stain. The other team members will send their pages to me and I will make it into a book. I'll make sure to take piccies so you can see the finished article.

This looks great! I love the 'randomness' of the stamped images - just like a real meadow!
