Fruity Recipe Book by

 My post today has a few photographs as I wanted to show the inside of the
Recipe book I've made.
The front cover is made with A4 white card and I ran it through the embossing machine in an A4 embossing folder.
I cut the card to A5 size and coloured with Vintage Photo Distress ink, a few sprays of water and when dry rubbed a little gold polish. The label was stamped with black ink and embossed with clear powder. I water coloured with distress inks.
For the inside pages I use Microsoft Publisher, drawing lines leaving the top of the page blank to be able to stamp in the space.
The stamping of the fruit inside was done like the front panel.
The edges of the pages were distressed with the vintage photo.

There are ten pages in the book for a few of my favourite recipes that I hunt through my various books for. It will contain chutney, cake, jam and scone recipes.

I bound the book with my Bind it all so in the future can take it to pieces and add more pages.

Many thanks for stopping by

Autumn Leaves

Two cards from me today using the Autumn Edges stamps.
I was inspired by lovely long walks through the leaves with the dog.
The crunch of golden leaves under foot reminds me
of being a child jumping in piles of garden leaves.
For the first, I stamped with brown Archival ink and water coloured with
Distress inks. The horse chestnut and acorns had a little glossy accents on them
to give a shine.
The second card was made using the Foliage colour Big and Juicy ink pad.
I stamped the solid leaf border across the bottom. Next I inked up the other leaves and again water coloured them. I cut out the leaves and fixed them to the card with sticky pads.
