A Scrappy Little Scamp

Today I’m sharing another one of the new Steampunk The Robert’s Family Portraits from Simply B Stamps, this little cutey is Betty’s son JudeHe was drawn by the super talented Abigail Larson and I think he is simply adorable.  I decided I would put him on an album ready for Halloween pics (not long to wait for the best holiday of the year!).

The album covers came with three rings so I used those, I made the binding with some thick cardboard off some packaging, some paper from the Chillingsworth Manor collection from Echo Park that had a matching pattern and shades of orange and green to match the cover and my Copic colours.  I reinforced the binding with Tyvek, which I painted black with Tim Holtz Distress Stain, I also used this to dye the leather strap of the closure.

I wanted to make the binding a bit more fancy and hide the rings so I tied some ribbons and made some charms to hang off the rings.

As this is not a card I’m entering it in some anything goes challenges at Hobby House Challenge Blog, Challenges 4 Everybody, and Paper Take Weekly as well as at Left of Centre with a LOC theme of Steampunk.
