Stampotique Designers Challenge #28

The challenge over at Stampotique Designers Challenge this fortnight is to use newsprint/old book pages as part of your creation.  I have made an interactive wiper card (from this tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers).

All background colouring was done using Adirondack color wash sprays.  I have used two pages from old books - the first is the one I have coloured blue and is from an old 2nd hand book, and the other is the piece of ledger in the centre of my card - this came from a very old ledger book that used to belong to my grandmother - I did not want to rip it up because it holds so much sentimental value, but I also remembered that she used to let a certain little granddaughter (who SHALL remain nameless!) colour in it, and I found a corner of one of those ripped/coloured pages to add to my card without altering the integrity of the book.


The stamps on the front are from Darkroom Door  'mail art', Stampotique 'honeycomb background' (on the blue book paper)and 'Eric' (his feet/socks as part of the border), and Making Memories foam alphabets stamped in frost white ink (colorbox) on black cardstock outlined in green Zebra sarasa pen (kind of looks a bit like felt).


When you open the card, the panels on the left and the surprise pop up reveals more color wash sprays, and stamps from Stampotique 'smile', 'welcome door' (behind the greeting) and 'honeycomb background' as well as Darkroom Door 'all occasions' for the greeting. 

I had so much fun getting inky (literally) making this card, and am so happy with how well the action of the card works!

Thanks for stopping by :)
