A Jacobs Ladder with De Stempelwinkel

Play time, for a change, in the Cubbyhole today. De Stempelwinkel have a (fairly new) challenge blog now and I keep meaning to join in. Time then runs away and before I know it the next challenge has started. Ooops. Anyway - a few hours was mine today and this is what emerged after the inking, gluing etc.
Several De Stempelwinkel stamps used. Nearly the entire plate of Animal Skeletons (plate 33) as well as some from Dark Night (plate 42) and also some odd ones I have in my collection.
A Jacobs Ladder ....

Picture heavy, sorry.

front cover made by "tiling" some DP with trees and two inside tiles. The first using gilding flakes the second with pan pastels

 more inside plates. The first two with gilding flakes the last with pan pastels

  Last 3 stamped inside plates and more gilding flakes

a LONG project to see in it's entirety but I hope you get the idea. Extra plates made from tiled DP paper.
Play time over, I hope you like this. Already my son(26) has spent longer playing with it than he thought he should. **little giggle**

I'd like to enter this into the challenge at
