How to Embellish a Notebook / Video

For this craft I used a flower stamp, embossing powder and colored pencils. Before stamping, I prepared my surface by rubbing some anti-static powder just to make sure that the embossing powder won’t stick to places I don’t want to. I then stamped my flowers on the cover of my notebook and sprinkled some white embossing powder on top. I then melt it with my heat gun and went ahead with the coloring. For today I choosed the Faber Castell pencils and the Gamsol, that helps blending the colors in.

As this notebook will be a gift for a friend’s birthday, I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment and embossed it with the white powder also. I then repeated the flowers on the back of the cover.
