Secret Stationary Cady

Stamps Used:
The Chap is from Grote Mannen Plate 167
The Star is from Plate 54 Prophecies
The Da Vinci Image and Fleur Des Lis are from Plate 02 Leonardo Da Vinci
The Diamond Pattern is from Plate 11 Checkers And Diamonds

Morning all, thanks for stopping by, Mark here and I am sharing a little secret book stationary caddy that I made in a class at my local craft store.
The book part was made from chip board and covered with design papers, the pockets were added to hold some cards and envelopes and some little note cards.
I distressed the back grounds using distress inks and stamped the image with archival ink, I applied the pale ochre to the stamp first and then swiped the images with a little sepia in places, this gives a two tone effect to the image and helps give a more distressed look to the images.The chap was stamped in the same way but with coffee first and then black.
Thanks for stopping by xx.

This is stunning! I'm impressed, it's so beautiful, and made with so much care for details!
A perfect gift for Father's Day, or, with other images, a personalised gift for someone special.
