Day 2

welcome to Day 2!!! today I have a matchbook to share with you...its one I made a while back for a swap and never posted pics...and since its midnight and I'm just now getting off work (midnight) I think this is a good time to use a backup :)

its all about bats! I used a bunch of bat images from the "little bit batty" digi set from Smeared Ink, then some bat stamps I have (I love bats and I kinda collect all things bats....you'll see) the background paper of each page is stamped differently...and the crown on the front is sparkly the cover bat image came from Close to my heart the back cover bat is from Inkadinkadoo. its held together by brads, and then there are lil clay bats glued to the top too...each bat was colored then glued in...then I used wax (lol candle wax because I couldn't find my regular bees wax...so it smells nice) and I just melted it on each page with a craft iron to give it a different look...I love how it turned out and I hope my swap buddy did too:)
 

now off you go to Alison...don't forget the list is on my sidebar ---->
"see ya" tomorrow!!!

bats are cool we use to have a live bat that took up resident in an old cinder block in our back yard during the day you could see him hanging upside down in the block sleeping. we left the block alone and tried to make sure it didnlt get disturbed

Awesome Matchbook, Kapree! The bats are colored beautifully and I swear the candle wax bring out the colors. What a nice added bonus of smelling nice. Most of my projects probably smell like old glue. I'm sure your swap partner loved her book!

Jane said...
