PA - inspired by Liesbeth's book

There's been another full on week at Paperartsy, all kinds of fabulous projects to enjoy.  Liesbeth was the week's returning GD and made an adorable accordian book (a Leporella) and I'd have loved to have had a go at the whole thing, but evenings ran away with me...

I did however, use the technique for her pages, for a couple of cards.
so I made a couple of backgrounds with distress inks on my craft mat, as Liesbeth did, I used Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge and Spiced Marmalade, and some Crushed Olive reinker.  I used the main image from LPC028 which was my prize from last week's draw (thanks PA team!) and LPC013
I used a white Posca pen instead of bleach for my highlights

These are so lovely to look at. I'm really impressed with the two you finished, and the beauty that shows through. I like how both are similar, yet so different, too.

Ooh, nice! Great colour combination, and those backgrounds are deliciously detailed without taking anything away from the stamped images.
