A stack of books

Hello to you all, I have used another one of my many Geli papers for this card....I treated myself to a few stamps and this is an Itty Bitty stamp set from unity stamps "Love is in the Pages" by Angie Blom.I am not usually known for being sloppy but I so love this set and the sentiment is fabulous... I just stamped directly onto my paper and coloured the image with some Distress ink then added a couple of butterflies and twine.xxx

Thank You

I just wanted to say I am not doing as much crafting at the moment due to lack of space, so apart from DT stuff you might not see much of me ...My craftroom is having a makeover and some new cabinets and is just a big mess at the moment. Hopefully everything will be back to normal in a couple of weeks.

I did manage this though ...I inked the backgroud with Denim Adirondak ink and then stamped my images with some black Archival.xxx
Items Used
Adirondak Ink-Denim
Inkylicious Stamps-Simply Trees
Hero Arts-Thank you stamp
