Off To Netherland

I am showcasing the NEVERLAND plate this week stamping Wendy and Peter into a book which I created from a Spellbinders die (Labels 29).
I cut five pages for my book and then coloured with Distress Inks brushed corduroy and walnut stain to age, tearing a few of the edges to add to the aged feel. I stamped the background with the Ephemera Background plate usng coffee Archival Ink to add a little more interest. I then stamped Wendy and Peter in black Archival Ink and coloured with Distress Inks to add further shading. I added twine to the centre of my book along with some chain tassel for added dimension and texture. I stamped Wendy and Peter and I'm Peter Pan in black Archival Ink.
My background has been coloured with brushed corduroy, walnut stain Distress Inks and antiqued bronze Distress Stain, applying each to a non-stick craft sheet, spritzing with water and mopping up the beads of ink with my card stock. I then tore a few of the edges and distressed to add to the aged feel, adding walnut stain Distress Ink to the edges. I stamped the sentiment onto white card, coloured with Distress Inks and added to the bottom corner.  For further interest I also included a word band.
I used the alphababet background stamp from the SECRETARY POOL plate to add READ to the top of my card, again coloured with Distress Inks. I also added birds also from the Neverland Plate stamped in black Archival Ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
