I made the above journal out of the leftovers papers from a journal my daughter needed me to make for a friend of hers that is going away to private school.
I stamped this gorgeous Giesha with Umbrella-16197 by Rubbernecker in Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed it. I colored it minimally using a Fantastix Coloring Tool with Stormy Sky and just a touch of Peeled Paint Distress Ink.
I stamped Rubbernecker's Bamboo-16210 in Stormy Sky repeatedly up the right side of the paper, first stamping off on scrap paper to make it a little more subtle. I did the same on a Spellbinders Labels One and stamped All Great Things-16478 and embossed it as well. I sponged the edges of of the patterned paper with Stormy Sky. The ribbon is actually a light blue satin ribbon that had been dyed with Stormy Sky to match. I added some black hemp twine and a Marianne Designs Oriental Fan charm.
My daughter had pretty detailed wants...flourishes, butterflies, black hemp and the letter N and not to fancy and had to be blue. This is what I came up with.........
This uses Rubbernecker's Butterfly inchies-15517 embossed, colored with Scattered Straw and Rusty hinge Distress inks and cut out. They are sitting atop Rubbernecker's Flourish 30-08. A plain and simple journal that she was happy with.
Thanks for stopping by! Wishing you all a lovely day!
