A scrapbook page!

This is my dear little Harry at the park. Lots of details on this page!

The title was made with Stampin' Up!'s bare chipboard letters and shapes. The 'i' was first covered with white craft ink, before using a sponge dauber to cover with blue ink from the Distressing Kit. I then daubed the edges with black ink.

The heart shape was covered with paper from the Love Letter DSP pack - draw around the shape, cut out (slightly smaller than the shape), adhere with Tombow liquid glue, sand the edges with a sanding block (from the Distressing Kit), then ink around the edges with Cherry Cobbler ink using a dauber. I added a loop of Linen Thread to the back, and a red button tied with Linen Thread to the front.

The letter 'u' was covered with Newsprint DSP and the edges inked in black as described above for the heart shape.

Sorry about the blurry photo! The bird from the Notably Ornate stamp set was stamped in Baja Breeze, then over-stamped in blue from the Distressing Kit using the En Francais background stamp. I then cut it out and inked the edges using the blue ink. The yellow strip you can see was crimped using the Paper Crimper.

The flower (from the retired Pretties Kit) was coloured using inks and daubers. The word 'harry' was done with rub-ons from the Vintage Rub-Ons pack (you get one sheet each of capitals and lower case letters in both black and white).

Tiny tags.. held on to the ribbon by a blue safety pin!
