Vintage book with ARTplorations

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my second  May inspiration made for ARTplorations with their stencils and stamps.
This time I made a book cover/mini book cover (easy to add some binding system and to add pages inside).
I decided to stay in this vintage monochromatic mood and worked with gold- black and brown color only. Yes, the  flower is yellow, but this is just the last second add- on  to add more interest.
I used Square links stencil and a sentiment from Trendy Butterflies stamp set with DecoArt texture crackle paste and Mixed Media line fluid acrylics over the thick cardstock cover  where I glued an old book page. Everything else was heat embossed with clear embossing powder over the black painted  with DecoArt chipboards. The stamped word was covered with glaze inside the chipboard frame. The book corners are die cuts (MFT) and again heat embossed with black powder. Some washi tape pieces were added on the book spine.

Products used:
Square links stencil
Trendy butterflies stamps
