Book Pages at Try It On Tuesday

If you are a bookworm then our new challenge at Try It On Tuesday may be just the challenge for you! The title of the Challenge? - Book Pages  - which gives you quite a lot of choices as you will see from the inspiring examples from the Design Team!

I have made a card to spur someone on through some difficult times.

I started by spritzing my card lightly, then sprinkling some Paper Artsy Infusions - Royal Blood and A Little Jaded - then spritzed again and made the colours blend by tilting the card around a little too.

I stamped some text randomly when the card was dry.
I stamped the Dina Wakley Scribbly Bird onto three different book pages - all with just a slight colour difference and in three different languages then paper pieced the bird together.
My bird needed something to stand on - My favourite croissant container has lovely wavy lines of corrugated card (I would still buy them even if they changed the wrapping - they are my twice monthly treat)
I coloured a strip with my new Tim Holtz Distress Crayons - I held out over these for ages as I do love my Crayola Twistable Slick Stix, but as the colours are so different I can use them alongside each other!
Finally I used the 'green bough' sentiment from Dina's set and one of Tim's small talk stickers.

We are off to our caravan this week - so please forgive me if I don't get to your blog until we get back! 

Hope to see you at Try It On Tuesday!

Thanks for looking, Chris

You make the most original and AWESOME cards. You make each recipient feel so very special because of all the time and effort you put into them. That is also true of this gorgeous TioT entry. It's a real winner!
