Library Pocket

May 27, 2009

Here is my project for the Tuesday Crafty Secrets Forum challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers. Marcy's challenge to us pockets in out projects.I have been meaning to come up with some sort of Library pocket with sign-out card for all the books we have in out home. Marcy's challenge has inspired me to come up with this Library Pocket.

Stamps used are from the Book Lovers and Frame-it stamps sets of Crafty Secrets Clear Art stamps. First I stamped the 'from the library of' 2x on white cs and colored it with Copic markers. The second stamped image was cut out and popped-up on top of the first with double-sided foam tape. On the first image, I added some journaling lines with the Frame-it stamped set. Used a circle coluzzle to cut the half center at the top and then distressed the edges with a distressing tool. Distressed the whole tag with Old Paper Distressing Ink and added gold at the edges with a gel pen. Pocket and base for the pocket uses DP's from the Porcelain Paper Pad of BasicGrey. Used a sticker from the Fond Recollections Heartwarming Vintage stickers on the pocket, added some lace that was stained with a copic marker and corners were done using a scrap paper from the porcelain paper that was punched and colored with copic markers. Added another image from the Book Lovers stamp set which was colored again with copics on the pocket.
Now I have to make quite a few more of these for all the books.

Stamps: Book Lovers and Frame It - Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps
Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento, Old Paper Distressing ink and various Copic markers
Paper: Porcelain Paper Pad - Basic Grey
