Happy Birthday Dad!

Well what to get the old fatherkins (sorry less of the old!) for his birthday.....I decided to procure an alphabet of beer, mostly courtesy of beer hawk, and to accompany it I created a little booklet, here are some of the pages and the beer in all it's glory on the kitchen floor hehe and a picture of the birthday boy himself!!

So the little book itself is mostly a lot of Dylusions ink everywhere! Plus a bit of Distress ink, a few stamps here and there plus an alphabet set for the letters, and good old mod podge for the gluing; and I remembered the merits of a white gel pen on the cover. I punched each page and tied them together with a couple of pieces of twine that I'd also dyed with ink, oh and I added a little sparkle on the front with perfect pearls.

Then to the card which is Distress stains and perfect pearls in the background, then Dylusions on some paper and then I stamped the map stamp which I think is Papermania, and a Tim Holtz Enjoy the journey stamp and tore them out and edged them with ink. I stuck them down with washi tape, oh and I had an off cut where I'd used texture paste through a stencil and inked over it. I took some plain chipboard letters and used alcohol inks and then rock candy crackle paint.

And that I believe is it..........................phew!!!!!!!!!!
