Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 223 - Anything but a Card.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi! back again to tell you that it's time for another challenge over
at Crafty Cardmakers.

Hi I'm hosting today and our challenge is 'Anything but a Card'.

As usual you can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to be cards, as long as it meets the challenge. 

Hope you will join in.
And here is my project for the challenge:

I made this using the Eileen Hull wrap around journal die. To this I added stencils and stamps by Dylusions and Tim Holtz.

I applied the detail to the masterboard using embossing paste and a stencil when this was set I applied the colour using Gelatos rubbing it back slightly to reveal the detail.

Die cut using the journal die and then stencil the inner section.

Colour with Gelatos.

To complete the cover I rubbed over Pebeo gilding wax.

The pages for the inside were cut using the Eileen Hull Passport die.

Stamping using Dylusion stamps and the images heat embossed.

Cut out the sections which will be attached. 

I used a ball tool to round the head a little before attaching with 3D stickers.

Once all the pieces are ready it's time to attach everything.
I added some ribbon to the tag, some small brass embellishments and glazed the face so I apologise for the slight glare.

I decorated some of the pages for the inside and added Dylusion stamped sentiments.

 So there you have it all completed.

I hope you will pop over to see what the rest of the DT have been up to and maybe join in the challenge.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with too.
 Happy crafty card making.
