Today's Inspiration Challenge is #595 and the subject is Healing Words. I got a little off the mark and did my card on words that heal me when I am down, and those are the words of a very good book. They take me away from the difficulties these days of reality. I love a good cozy mystery, very rarely a body, more like who stole the antique book worth millions from the local vintage book store!
I watched a few Tim Holtz Distress stain videos this morning to create my bg, aged mahogany, peeled paint, spiced marmalade and a very little bit of vintage photo. Spritzed. Dried. Rolled TH tarnished brass over a large stamp, spritzed, stamped and dried, and then ironed the cs from the back to make it flat again. The book pages are real from my go-to book on vintage paper, an 1840s edition of Ivanhoe, and the photo is taken on top of this book. Embroidery floss makes the bookmark. This for all of us bibliophiles! TFL

Oh, I just love your sentiment and the fabulous way you've added the old book pages, the script stamping and those fabulous old-time spectacles! I consider a day without some time to read a very sad day!
