Stampotique Designers Challenge - Sketch Challenge #60


Welcome to the new challenge over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog. This weeks sketch challenge has been set by Kim.

I decided against a card for the challenge although the sketch did lend itself to a card design, but I never feel very comfortable making cards, and I usually make tags cards or Beer Mats to send instead, so I decided to use the sketch design to make this little pad.

I have used Smile as my main image, stamping and colouring him in so he fits in well with my background. The two background stamps I have used are  Daniel's hearts and Spiraling out of control. My background for my stamping was done with distress inks and all my stamping was done using Ranger black archival ink. My "notes" word is computer generated.
I bound it all together into a little book using my Zutter.

Thank you for dropping by and if you have time to leave a comment that would be great. Do please go over to the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog to see all the inspiration from the Design Team and to see the full details for the challenge.

Thank you for dropping by, Carol x
