It's time for another challenge over at Sweet Pea Stampers and this time we have a sketch for you to follow.
I decided that I'd use the sketch to alter a notebook for my daughter. My friend had picked up a pile of these horrible notebooks and her boys flatly refused to use them, so she was chucking them out! Being the horder that I am, I rescued them and have transformed this one into something slightly prettier!
I started off by prising open the wire to release the front and back cover. I then covered them with Pirate Princess papers from Rusty Pickle and inked the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink. The panels were matted and layered onto to some silver cardstock from The Papermill.
I stamped the image Unregrettable Pirate Life from Sweet Pea Stamps with Memento ink and then coloured it with Promarkers. The image was then spritzed with Glimmer Mist and given a generous coating of Stickles and Glossy Accents. It was then matted onto the silver cardstock which was distressed with a distressing tool and inks. The sentiment was computer generated and cut out using Nesties. Again the edges were inked with Black Soot. The notebook was then reassembled, prettied up with ribbons and gems et voila the finished product!
Thanks for stopping by and I'll look forward to seeing your entries.
