All Aboard!

I thought I would share my distressed Vintage book cover with you. First I gessoed the cover,then coloured it with distress inks, using some sequin waste I added random patches of different colours.The frame is recyled from a card I had from a friend,too good to waste. I lightly sanded it down and rubbed it over with Tea Dye distress ink.The image is from Crafty individuals,the stamps are from Blockhead,Steampunk. The fabulous cogs are from a new company  To complete the distressed look I lightly sanded some of the edges of the book and then dabbed over some more tea dye ink. Hope you like it.
