SWEETPEA DT INSPIRATION

For today's project I thought I would use these fabulous stamps from MARLON TEUNISSEN'S COLLECTION to create a PASSPORT cover.

The stamps are available singularly or as a plate here.

The Pilot
Steam Angel









To make this cover I used an empty Cereal box, covered both sides and then used a sewing machine to edge.  Unfortunately I didn't check the stitches before starting so the stitching isn't set on the proper tension but the effect is OK.

I then finished colouring the images and cut the die cut shapes - having another mishap - the die slipped whilst embossing but again I quite liked the effect!

To strengthen the spine I gilded and decorated with PVA glue faux pearls.  I decided not to add too many embellishments as I wanted the cover to remain quite flat.

Techniques:
USED:      Cereal box

Medium:   Copics, Sakura glitter pen, black gel pen, distressing ink, gilding flakes
Papers:    Kanban
Dies used:    Marianne stamp dies, Circle punch, Sizzix corners
Embellishments:  Faux pearls, Epoxy caps
