Cuttlebug Challenge Be Inspired #41

Here is my entry for Cuttlebug Challenge's Be Inspired #41 Challenge---to alter something. Here I have altered a glossy front journal and made it into a scrapbook that looks like a purse for my daughter to fill up with her many treasures and memories :)
Since the original journal was glossy I used alcohol inks w/blending solution to create that deep purple watery effect. I used glossy white and gold papers. I embossed the gold paper w/Sizzix embossing folder (from a birthday set but it looks like eyelet to me) and edged both the gold and white papers with the Martha Stewart Doily Lace Edge punch. I used the Paper Shapers corner punch on the embossed gold paper to add to bottom corners. I took the Memory Boutique shaped chipboard and used gold mixative alcohol ink on it to make it gold. I then heated up some gold embossing powder (3 layers) and stamped my daughter's initial "D" into it before it cooled. Added the ribbons and chain to make it look like a purse.
