morning all! hope you are having a fabulous weekend! had a great day of football yesterday...lots of good games, and the upsets were so much fun! anyways...on to the reason for today's post. i recently bought a 7gypsies binderie...and pulled it out this weekend to play. it came with a cutie little book to get you started...and here is what the cover was as it came out of the package...
now i love the black and off-white...one of my favorite combos...but it just wasn't quite what i wanted...here is what i ended up with
i started by cutting a piece of grungepaper to the same size as the cover...used a tim holtz mask and distress ink to get the base done. i then stamped the entire piece with a large background stamp, stamped a clock face on clear cardstock and then layered the clock with some idea-ology parts; finished it off with some metal book corners and a grunge flower.
oh snap! better mention the fact that this was created with the Simon Says Stamp and Show your metal challenge in mind!
Hope you have a fantastic Sunday!
