Bouquet Album Cover

Hi everyone, it's Taylor here, sharing a little project. I've started working on a mini-album (ok, it should have been finished by now, but life intervened) and today I'm sharing the front cover. I started with the Mix and Match Album #2 from Creative Cuts and More (in Bazzill Kraft).  This is a super cool little set - you get 2 each of 4 pre-cut pieces of card stock, each one 8 1/2" x 5 1/2". You can order different sizes of album rings separately.

I started by stamping my gorgeous Baroque Bouquet Cling Jumbo rubber stamp directly onto my card stock. I added a bit of color using regular colored pencils from my daughter's art stash.  I added sponging all around the outer edges of the page. Then I stamped Versamark ink directly to the card stock, and poured Deep Impressions Clear Embossing powder over the whole thing. I heated it from underneath, and once it was all melted I applied a second coat.

My buckle was made using a buckle from Buckle Set #2 and covering it with Shabby White Enamel. It has cool flecks of gold in it, and looks fabulous once heated.  I finished it off with a bit of ribbon. I'll be sharing more album pages in the near future, so stay tuned.

This is absolutely beautiful! How did you emboss the whole thing without tweezer marks?
