Hello and welcome back!
Today’s guest artist is Melanie Muenchinger and she has a new video featuring her Open Book stamp set, now back in stock HERE.
Today I am sharing a card with Open Book and two of my faith-based sets, Women of Faith and This Girl Is.
It’s difficult for me to think about faith-based designs without the foundation of the Bible, so the book image is a perfect companion to these sets. We’re using the masks I showed you in last week’s video again, this time to add sponging to the outside to add depth in the background and on the inside to give more dimension to the book itself.
I’m also sharing a great way to gild your pages with embossing powder and the MISTI, which will add not only luster but the importance and specialness reserved for real texts that are treated this way, that any book lover is sure to appreciate!
Books with gold pages (or in this case, rose gold!) spark joy in my life and are handled and enjoyed with the utmost care. I’ve also thrown in one of my favorite backgrounds, the Elegant Script which is a must have with the Open Book set.
(Please note, Melanie mentioned our sale from a week ago in this video because that is when she posted it to her YouTube channel. That sale has ended.)
