Queen Kat Designs Saturday Challenge

This is a little project I made for the Queen Kat Designs Saturday Challenge. This weeks challenge was a technique challenge. Using the Spotlight technique! Queen Kat has some awesome images! I love them.

For my project I used basic gray cardstock from SU, patterned paper from Michaels, sorry I don't pay attention to the brand I just buy what I like!, Whisper White cardstock form SU and the Winter Watcher Stamp from Sweet Pea Stamps. I used copic colors C-1,C-3,C-7,B23,B32,E02, to color the spotlight!

Hope you enjoy!!!

Winter Watcher Mini Journal


Today I am showing a mini journal that I made.  Usually I take a journal that I have purchased and alter it, today I made this journal from the cover to the inside.  I used small board books from SU for the covers and just regular printer paper for the inside pages.  The stamp is from Sweet Pea Stamps she is called Winter Watcher.  This was my first chance to use my copic markers that I got for Christmas and I was so excited.  I think I colored her about 5 different times before I finally got it the way I wanted, but what better excuse to play with my new toys!!!!  I bound the journal with small rings and then wrapped those in black fiber ribbon.  The ribbon that closes the journal is from a store(Aerie) where i got a present for my daughter.  They always put your purchases in a little gift bag with tissue paper and ribbon!  I hope you enjoy her as much as I enjoyed palying with her.  Please go and check out Sweet Pea stamps if you haven't before or even if it has been a while,  they have some awesome images over there!

On another note check out all the things happening over on Smeared and Smudged there are some awesome challenges and this months sponsor is Fairie Song.
