Hidden Treasure

Hello.. today i would love to show you something that i have made for Cute Card Thursday. The challenge for this week is to hide a treasure or a gift on your card/project. I decided to alter a notebook that my friend Donalda has bind for me with her Bind-It-All a long time ago.
The treasure can be found when the book gets opened. I have made a little 4x4 envelope with my Crafters Companion and just tucked a few stripes of gum in there and the little pen can be added to the spirals of the book. A little note with maybe one extra stamped image would have been cute too .. i just ran out of time.
Above is a close up of the coloring - i remembered to take all the numbers down i have used from my Copic Sketch Markers.

Stamps: Hanglar Stanglar
Papers: Basic Grey "RECESS" a gift from my friend Jacque
Embellishments: Creative Imaginations (star hardware ~ Archivers), Karen Forster (chain)
Tools: Crafters Companion, Top Note Die, Crop A Dile, Bind It All
Copic Sketch: y21, w3, w4, e50, e00, e39, e08, e41, w1, b41, w7, r20, e07, e25, e29, b91, e15, w06, b0000, e11, e000, w05b 52, yg95, yg93

Barb Hardeman said...

Hey Claudia, what a fantastic job you have done with this little note book. Oh, how I wish they would sell hAnglar stAnglar images in the US. My husband asked me the other day where in the world would I like to go if money was no question about it - Sweden! Well of course that's out of the question. So I will live vicariously through your wonderful hAnglar images and your beautiful coloring...another WOW project from the lovely Claudia...hugs...Barb
