Punch both black and white cardstock using binding machine. Punch pages along the top edge and then bind with ¾-inch black wire.

Spray a piece of white card stock with Spritz ink, first with Grape Burst and then with Spun Sugar. Allow to dry.

Stamp over spritzed paper using Windowpane Monarch stamp and black pigment ink pad.

Tips
