Work of Art

I found this great card on Pinterest sometime ago & it stuck in my head.  I loved the way the person had used the stamp to create her look.  Reminded me a bit of abstract art!

So many looks are able to be created using the fabulous “Work of Art” Stamp Set – gotta love it when you can achieve heaps with 1 set!

While using the same colours (I think), I’ve changed mine a little by using Buttons & Twine for the centre of the flowers.

So that I could stamp directly onto the now retired “First Edition Speciality” DSP, I temporary marked the front of my notebook prior to stamping.  I wasn’t too worried if the stamping would not all fit on the front, as it gives it a bit of a different look.

For the bottom flower, I stamped directly onto the DSP with Blackberry Bliss Ink, stamping in a circle.  I again repeated the same step, but this time stamping off prior to stamping direct onto the DSP.

For the top flower I stamped off once prior to stamping direct onto the DSP, again in a circle.  I repeated the same step, but this time stamping off twice prior to stamping direct onto the DSP.001-close-up-blog

With the little bits of green around the front, I used Old Olive Ink to match the Ribbon.

I then proceeded to cover my book with the DSP.  I covered the Spine with a piece of BlackBerry Bliss CS & adhered a piece of retired Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon for the Bookmark, ensuring it was long enough once the book was open.

For the centres, I threaded a piece of Natural Linen Thread through 2 x Crushed Curry Buttons, tied at back & adhered with Glue Dots.  The same stamp as the flowers were used.

I printed the word “Journal” with MDS, punched with Oval Punch & adhered to a piece of Old Olive CS which had been punched with the Scallop Oval Punch.  This was then adhered to the book with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish the cover, I lightly sprayed with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.

I love the colours of Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive & a splash of Crushed Curry – they seem so very vibrant!

Until next time, Happy Stampin!
