Another day at The Stamp Attic

Pen and I spent Sunday at the Stamp Attic taking part in a class with Sue Roddis. This time it was all about faux metal which involved embossing card covered with foil with the Cuttlebug.

We also played with Stazon inks to create the really brightly coloured elements to decorate

our backgrounds with. I must say this is the MESSIEST class I have ever been to. I even decided I needed to resort to rubber gloves for the first time ever LOL.

The front and the back were both decorated and the pieces joined together with twill tape.


This is the final product. The undecorated pieces forming the back cover. Thanks to Wendy and Sue and all the other class members for a very entertaining day!

This is fantastic you are so lucky to have been able to go to this class, unfortunately I live too far away. I would have absolutely loved this class, your book is just out of this world.
