A couple more pages for the LTD grunge book swap. darkroom door 'vintage automobiles' was the set of stamps I used for the 1st page. After stamping with black stazon I inked the edge with Adirondack cloud dye ink. Then used UTEE and the cracked glass technique, took 3 goes to achieve the look I wanted! Finally I stamped some of the verses' with expresso and the others with versamark and gold EP though the embossing doesn't show too well in the photo

For the second page I used an adorable Mabel Lucy Atwell stamp from the Artistic Stamper. Love this image, it reminds me of my childhood reading those beautifully illustrated books. The image was stamped with Stazon timber brown and coloured with adirondack dyes inks. The Sentiment is one of Tim's 'Good thoughts' the flowers are also one of Tim's dies which I cut on the bigshot and inked with the same inks as before.
thanks for stopping by
