Another round robin page

I've finished yet another of the round robin pages for my local stamp group. Laura's book is made from regular CDs - she punched holes and attached them together with a large ring clip. Her theme is "Fruit of the Spirit" and she wanted bright "fruity" colors.

I chose faithfulness and used deep purple cardstock on the front of my page. Unbelievably, I only had one cross stamp and nothing with faith! For the background I stamped the cross stamp with Versamark and wiped over it with silver Perfect Pearls. I filled in the center cross with a silver Krylon pen, attached the cross charm and added silver Stickles. I borrowed a stamp for the wording and cut it up. The "faith" metal embellishment was part of a $1 package and I used alcohol inks to color it. I heat-embossed a glittery silver embossing powder around the edges.

On the back, I adhered a song page from an old hymnal, stippled it with purple ink and coated it with a sparkle glaze. I think the ink ran but I like the mottled coloration. The scripture is, again, a borrowed stamp. Then I added purple and silver fibers at the top.

Only two more books to work in! Can't wait to see my own finished book.
