Scroll in a Book

It took me a while to figure out what to do with the cover of this book (which has a scroll inside). It's a Club Scrap project from the Cyprus kit. The amphora stamp is cut down from a much larger stamp (also from the Cyprus kit) stamped with Topiary Antiquities by Ranger. Ranger's Matte Glue n Seal used to glue the image to the book front (no glue shine).

The D-ring is decorated with seam binding tinted by letting it absorb puddles of Distress Ink (smoosh the inkpad on a craft mat and spritz with water. The twine is smooth hemp twine by Darice from the jewelry department. The vial and coin charm are both from Club Scrap's Castaway kit. After I tied the vial, I added a dot of Ranger's Matte Multi Medium.  I used a sticker from Tim Holtz' Chitchat sticker book to put in the vial.

All the scroll components were painted with Iced Spruce Distress Paint. The back of the scroll is stamped with Iced Spruce Distress Ink using a variety of Tim Holtz stamps. The front is stamped with Dina Wakley's Scribbled Insects stamp set (the sentiments in Black Soot, the insects in Gathered Twigs and the background stamps are various Tim Holtz stamps stamped with Scattered Straw).
