Papertrey February Blog Hop Challenge

February 25, 2013

Papertrey Ink’s February Blog Hop Challenge is challenging us to use Monograms for our blog hop project. I spent the longest time trying to organize my stamps around my monogram!


I made a very small notebook. With a whopping four lined pages. Very small, and not to mention, very useless 😛

Monogram Note Book

There are four lined pages in the notebook, each decorated similarly to the cover. The book is binded by stitching with a piece of brown felt adhered over.

I really enjoy the ombre stamping instead of using copics for shading. For me, the blending is much smoother with inkpads than trying to attempt copic shading.
