Take A Note Please.....

Morning!

Tis a lovely sunny day here...let's hope it stays like it cos we have had enough rain to last us now :O))

I got a bit inky and messy the other day...and my hand really is improving...to the point that I could get inky fingers and no pain! Yay...looks like it was a success!

I bought some little notepads aaaages ago, you know, like you do.... you see them in the bargain bin and think that you will alter them...one day..... Well, "one day" was Tuesday and I decided enough was enough, all these alterables sitting about, neglected...




I cut some cream cardstock and used Distress Inks to colour the background, using a Mini Mask on the way, spritzing with water, stamping and overstamping...making a little bookplate using the Slice and generally enjoying the inkyness of it all. The stamps are Tim Holtz collection except for the "Look Inside" which is a Catslife Press one.




I added a few tied bits of ribbon to the ringbinder, trying to cover up the little gap at the top of the card!

Thanks for looking, have a lovely day whatever you are up to.
