Altered Binder

It took me quite awhile to alter this binder today, but it was oh, so fun! I really enjoyed my time. I used *Wink *Wink Ink's stamp, "Jewel" as my main feature. I colored it in with Prismacolor pencils and blended with Gamsol. I'm just sure if you tell by the photo, but I added Stickles to the jewel. I used one of my Cuttlebug embossing folders to emboss the red and black papers under the dragon (the rectangles of paper). The flowers are all made by Prima. I used one of my Martha Stewart border punches for the black side, there. Here's the sketch I used today from Papertake Weekly:

Other challenges I'm entering with this are:

Charisma Cardz
- Anything New (*Wink *Wink Ink is a new company and Jewel is a new stamp!)
Simon Says - Shabby Chic (I distressed quite a bit of the paper and used my Old World Die Cuts With a View pad of paper).
ABC Challenge - L is for Layering
A Spoon Full of Sugar - a recipe (3 pieces of designer paper, 1 piece ribbon, 3 flowers, and 3 buttons).
Crafty Creations - Textures.
Cinema Saturday - A Night at the Museum (that adorable dragon did remind me of this movie as did the colors!)

Thanks so much for stopping by! If you get a chance, you should see all the new, adorable stamps *Wink *Wink Ink has to offer! I've been having SO much fun with them! :)
