If you click on the image you get a better idea of the 'wet' looking texture. Any white spots are reflections of the light - as the embossing is really lovely and shiny.
I have spent all day making some BIA note books. In fact I have been busy doing quite a few things behind the scenes - but as they are presents I can't risk posting them on here.
The photo above is of one I made earlier - and the photo below is the same notebook which I 'tweaked' a bit today.
This took me hours to make - but I am quite pleased with how it turned out in the end.
The imaged is stamped and embossed - and in 'the hand' its a great texture and looks lovely with a 'wet' look to it all. Took me so long to cut, make, and decorate the covers. I tied up the threads twice then added the fish bone and hand made with love silver charms. I spent a lot of time trying to create an initial for it - but after three aborted attempts I gave up and put the silver charms on.
As it will be a present and it's going in a box - it qualifies for this week's challenge in One Powerful Hour.
