SDC 168 Use Book Text - Wednesday's With Claudine

Hello all, Wednesday's always mark another fun challenge over at Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog and this week our hostess is Corrie Herriman and she has chosen the theme 

"Use Book Text"

I love the theme but I don't have a ton of books that I tear up, I need to go to the thrift store and get some so that I can just rip those pages and use them for backgrounds.

I did find one book to use for this challenge and it was an older book that the kids never liked so I figured it was ok haha!
I used a gelli print that I have had for awhile for my background and I added the torn book print and then painted a little bit over it so that it would blend well with the background


Stampotique Stamps I used are:
Ignis - By Artist Magda Polakow
Barcode Text AND Barcode By Artist France Papillon
Cross Hatch Swirl - By Artist Maryse Carrier

Here is my finished postcard



I stamped Ignis onto the book text and colored her with distress markers, this way the book text shows through
I also doodled a bit all over the edges and added a sentiment that a friend of mine lives by haha!! 
Thanks for coming by, I hope you will join us in this challenge

A crafty combination of stamps, Claudine, all supported by that base layer of book text--revisted in your image! Lovin' this!
