Chunky Alphabet Book S T and U

Here are my STand U pages for the Chunky Alphabet Book swap over on KCUK.
S is for strawberry.
I coloured the background with distress ink and then stamped some strawberries over it with the same colour. I stamped the main image onto cream card and coloured the edges with distress ink and coloured the image with Promarkers. The large strawberry was stamped and coloured with Promarkers, the two smaller strawberries were cut out of some patterned paper. I double embossed the strawberries with clear embossing powder before attaching to the page.
T is for tea party.
The background paper is from my stash. I stamped the main image onto white card then masked it of before colouring with broken china Distress Ink then I went round the edges with weathered wood. I removed the mask and left the image white then I matted it onto some pink card. I attached part of a book page to the background then attached the main image. The cup and saucer were stamped onto white card and coloured with Promarkers the letter T is a rub on. Last but not least I added a silver teapot charm to the image.
U is for umbrella.
The page is coloured with broken china and weathered wood Distress Ink and I used my finger to go round the edge with rusty hinge. I stamped the image with dried marigold onto the background then stamped it onto white card with black ink and coloured it with dried marigold, then I cut it out and attached it to the card. I stamped the image twice again and cut the umbrellas out, two were left black and white and I coloured the other two with Promarkers. I attached them to the page together with a torn piece of a dictionary and some raindrop and splat stickers from my stash.

  1. Wow, what beautiful pages. Love the strawberry recipe, too!

  2. Hazel there is such thought and work into each piece. Imaginative to come up with the idea of a receipe for "S". The Wonderland tea party is fabulours (have a weakness for Alice in Wonderland) and the umbrellas. This is 1st class art.

  3. Oooh Hazel 3 lovely pages xxxx The umbrella one is my favourite

  4. Love them all Hazel but I do like the umbrella one. Don't know what it is that catches my eye but if I had to choose a favourite it would be that one.
    Love the strawberry one - great idea to incorporate a recipe for the lucky recipient; Alice - well anything Alice is tops in my book - so why I choose no 3 I don't know. Love those splats by the way.
    Oh heck! On looking back I can't make my mind up - let's leave it that I love them all as much.

  5. These are lovely Hazel! Love them all! xxx

  6. Lovely pages, Hazel. Those strawberries look really luscious!

  7. Hazel these are gorgeous. Love em
