Alpha Challenge - Letter V

I've decided to join in with the Craft Barns Alpha Challenge. The first letter is V. I've got an old dictionary and have decided to tear the pages out and stick them in a journal. The word that I've chosen is VEHICLE.


I've ringed my word but it doesn't show up very well. 
I've used Distress stain, Fresco paint and DecoArt paint on the pages.
I also used Crafters Workshop and Creative Expressions masks.
The stamps that I used are Katzelkraft, 7Gypsies and Stamp Bug.
I stamped the images onto tissue paper before adhering them to the pages. I added a few dots with a white pen.

I'm also going to enter my pages in the
Fashionable Stamping Challenge  Trains, Planes and Automobiles.

  15. Excellent, Hazel and your white dots look white, unlike mine! PLMK which pen you're using - I feel as if I've tried them all. Love this idea but of course the French is what I like the best :-) Cath xxx
