Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - DT Piece



This weeks challenge has been set by the very talented Kim and she has chosen the theme - Recycle. I have a lovely bottle of bubble bath from Mauritius and around the top, its wrapped with Rafia, well the bottles almost finished to took the rafia to use as an embellishment. I made this A6 Notebook using SN "Talking to the Birds". Its been coloured with Copic Markers and have added Crytsal Stickles to the flowers. The brown border has also been made using the Copics, It was trial and error, using both blender pen and colour, just kept mixing the 2 which resulted in this distressed look.The backing papers are K & Co and the little bird stamp is Hero Arts. I've made smaller notepads before, but this is the first time I'ved covered a notebook. Pretty isn't she! Hope you can join us with this weeks Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, you can see the other DT's pieces here. Have a great weekend!
