Etched books

I have been going to use these metal etched pieces for a book cover for 3 years !, its awful isnt it to think they have been sitting waiting to be made up for that long sad eh.




I finally got my "Bum" into gear and here they are they are.Its a Dark Room Door stamp a wonderful Aussie company and they are really stunning stamps.Im so happy with how they turned out,you cant rush these things LOL.
I love hanging things off the side so I attached a chain and hang off some treasures.

I have another metal etched book coming and belive it or not I only etched them last week,its also a stunning stamp you will have to wait till I put the book together,I promise it wont be 3 years though.

a book that beautiful would make one very mindful of what they pen into it... you would want you most precious thoughts, favorite quotes, meaningful doodles... you are providing a person with a treasure chest in the waiting -
this is stunning...
so interested to see the stamps...
