Inspired by a Book Cover

Hello my crafty friends,

It's time for our next challenge over at Make My Monday and this week our Mynnette has another book cover as inspiration. I love these - it definitely gets the grey matter thinking - here's the photo we used ...

I love the simplicity of this one and decided to keep my project along very similar lines - here's what I made ...

I made a 6x6" card by simply matting and layering first a piece of black card and then some textured cream cardstock.  I added a strip of embossed card, together with a piece of ivory lace (which I embellished with a few pearls).  I wanted to recreate the cameo on the front of the book, but have to admit the main image is printed from my pc as I didn't have any stamps along these lines. The sentiment is stamped in black archival ink and is inked around the edge with 'Black Soot' distress ink. 

Don't forget to pop over to the main blog and check out the fab work of my teamies.
Hugz, Jan xx


  1. I too went for simplicity but yours is so much more elegant and pretty. Caz
