Tombow..."Show and Tell"

Good morning everyone....

I have a little project to share with you and for
"Tombow USA Show and Tell"
that's going on over at
Tombow USA Facebook

Be sure to check it out and maybe you would like to play along!!!

My "Show and Tell" project is an address book
that I covered. Now... I know it's a little busy but
I was hoping for the effect that the image blended
into the fabric...not sure if I have achieved!!

To start I took out the binding and covered the
front and back of the covers with black swiss dot
card stock using Tombow Power Bond to adhere it.
On the inside of the covers I used Tombow Tape
Runner permanent adhesive
to adhere the
ribbons and Tombow Mono Aqua liquid glue
to adhere the finishing pieces of card stock inside.
I then made 2 quilted pieces with this
fabulous Mary Engelbreit fabric and adhered
them to the covers with Tombow Power Bond.

I stamped and embossed the image....
"Country Garden" from High Hopes Stamps
and painted it with Tombow markers.

I used Tombow Mono Aqua liquid glue to
adhere the image to black card stock and cut
around the image leaving a tiny edge of black.I used
Tombow Foam tabs to pop-up the image on
the fabric. I adhered the metal tag to the fabric
with Tombow Power Tabs as well as the bow.
I put the binding back in and added the ribbons.

I hope you like it!!!

Have a fabulous day
Thanks for stopping by...
