Tilda Cooks Journal

I just found the BasicGrey challenge where this month the theme is Embossing and of course you need to use one of their products I have used papers from the Bitter Sweet collection to alter and cover this Journal I also used the same papers to make the flowers and I used cuttle bug embossing folders to emboss the layering shapes.
At the Craft challenge this week they have a colour comb challenge "Pink & Brown" 2 colours that I love together .
The Tilda stamp I used is from the new Magnolia range and I coloured her with my Copic markers and distressed the edge of the circle Tim Holtz distress inks in the following colours Tea die, Antique linen and Vintage photo.
I finished the spring bound Journal by tying eyelash fibres round the bindings.
Ideal for keeping all your recipes in one place
