Address Book

I've altered an existing address book which had a rather uninspiring cover which was certainly needed to be changed! I've coloured a Michelle Perkett image with Promarkers which I received as part of the Special 50/50 stamping group, which is being relaunched very soon and will include a blog hop - so check back with my blog for more details in the near future!

This book fits in with the current Michelle Perkett Studio challenge which is:

Anything Goes

I've covered the address book with a sheet of 12x12 paper which I don't know where it is from as its not named! I've layered the image onto corresponding coloured card and then added a satin ribbon underneath and a bow.

The lettering on the bottom has been cut with a Cuttlebug Baby Face alphabet set.

A bit of inking around the edges and the address book is complete! Apologies for the washed out photos, but the light was terrible this morning before I left - the colours in real life are quite vibrant!
