A Study in Scarlet...

This is the theme set by Jane, for this weeks Fat Book Page Challenge on Craftswap forum!

After a deal of umming and ahhing, thinking and searching, I came up with this...
















I have used some textured red paper for this, with a slight sheen...hence the bad photography! The key and keyhole stamps are from Tanda stamps and the secret stamp...hmmm...not sure!
Inside left...the lace stamped image is also from Tanda and the heart is a die cut which has been inked round the edge and a piece of organza ribbon tied across it. The couple on a bench was an unmounted stamp from ebay some time back so I'm not sure of it's manufacturer! (not good at this stamp naming lark am I?? !!!) ... 'eternity' has been stamped on a separate piece of the same paper and an eyelet put in with ribbon to finish.
Oh...nearly forgot!!! The metal hinges, from making memories, were cream, so I needed to colour them. Not having a red alcohol ink I thought I'd try peel off pen as I wanted something that would dry. It did better than that...I did three layers of colour to get a deep red and it has dried with the marble effect that alcohol inks give!! Result!!!
