I Wish You Were Here!

Having some fun this month playing along with the Vintage Journey Challenge and Creative Artiste Challenge

I used:

Ranger -
Pitch Black & Teak Wood Alcohol Inks
Blending Solution
Glossy Accents.

Tim Holtz -
Fragment Charm
The edge waste from an Industrious Sticker (to create a frame on the charm)
Distressable Doodads
Distress Inks, Black Soot and Frayed Burlap
Travel Ephemera

Sizzix/Tim Holtz-
ATC die
Postcard embossing folder

Graphic45 Brad used on the Fragment Charm

I began by making an ATC size book using black cardstock for the book hinge and ATC pages, I then used heavyweight chipboard for the covers. The covers were covered in foil, embossed and then alcohol inked. I filled each of the pages with inked ephemera.

The little book is held closed with an elastic tie and Tim Holtz journey charm.
