Simon Says Stamp and Show

Here is a book that I made for the Tim Holt Challenge that is going on over at Simon Says Stamp and Show with a donation from Simon Says Stamps.

I used the new Sizzix Distress Crackle Embossing folder on my chipboard board book and than using my Snowball Dabber I dabbed paint on my cover, when I dried I distressed over the top with the 3 different distress inks wiping off with a lightly damp paper towel over the top of the distress inks after they were applied to expose the white dabber.

I painted my grungeboard skull head with black, when dried add the Aged Mahogany ink over the top. I then applied Glimmer Glam to the top to make it nice and shiny. I also distress my Lifte Stories tags, once everything was adhered to my book I applied Glossy Accent to the eyes and nose holes of my Skull. The last thing I did was add my ribbon and metals to the book cover.
