Challenge #139 at Glitter N Sparkle

Post #6, 
Here is the 4th of my Glitter n Sparkle Blogs that I have missed.
With the perfect Quote from C.S Lewis
(who wrote 'Alice in Wonderland' and other books)
which suits me down to a 'Tea'.

I find it so hard to put a book down once I've started it.
And I always disappear off into the world of which I am reading,
laughing and crying out loud
(usually to the annoyance of anyone who is around me)
living the lives of the characters with them.

The Theme at
Include An Animal

My Project this week was:-
Book And Tea Digi Stamp
from Digi Blessings 
at Stitchy Bear Stamps
(one of our sponsors)

To start with I drew myself a Book of Tricks Template to work from.
Then using an A4 sheet of Deep Blue Leather Effect Card
I cut out the Largest Size.
For the Middle Page I used a Sheet of A4 White Card
and for the smallest Page 
I 1st printed off an 2 page spread of a book
(which has been blurred so you can't read the print)
then cut it out with the template.

Next I printed the Image and 
the accompanying Quote
  on White DC Paper
and coloured the Image in
using my Promarker Pens

                                                            Ivory - Book Pages
                                                            Dusky Pink - Mouse Ears
                                                            Mustard - Teabag Paper
                                                            Poppy - Cherries
                                                            Pastel Blue - Cup
                                                            Denim Blue - Cup/Saucer
                                                            Cool Aqua - Book Cover
                                                            Duck Egg - Saucer 
                                                            Sandstone - Buns
                                                            Caramel - Mouse/Tea/Buns
                                                            Cinnamon - Mouse/Tea
                                                            Cocoa - Mouse/Buns
                                                            Burnt Sienna - Tea
                                                            Shale - Mouse Feet
                                                            Cool Grey 1 - Cup/Spoon/Steam
                                                            Cool Grey 3 - Cup/Saucer
                                                            Cool Grey 4 - Cup/Saucer/Mouse Nose
                                                            Black - Buns

I then Die-Cut both the Image and the Quote out 
using 2 sizes of Ornate Frame Squares
Once cut I the went around the edges of both with my
Denim Blue Promarker Pen.
On The Quote I used Dark Smokey Blue Decorative Pastel Chalk
to highlight the edges.

Down the center of the Book Of Tricks 
I place a Blue/White Checked Ribbon
and I had made a bow from the same ribbon to place at the top.

To finish off I added some Holographic White Glitter
(Glitter Magic)
to the Spoon.

I added 2mm Red Rhineston Gems
to the Buns

 And finally I added some Glossy Accents 
to the Mouse's Glasses to make them 3D.
