My Other Creations: Notebook using Stamping Bella's Oddball Sparkle Fairy

"Add a little sparkle" is this week's theme at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.  What better opportunity to use a whimsically wonderful new stamp from Stamping Bella called "Oddball Sparkle Fairy"?
The components of this notebook cover were pretty basic.  I started the background with Strathmore Mixed Media paper and covered parts of it with white paint smeared over a polka dot stencil.  Then I spritzed Dylusions Ink and water over the stenciled dots.  Because I'd laid the white paint on pretty thick, the dots showed up nicely after I spritzed it with the ink and water.

I stamped and fussy-cut out the stamped image and sentiment as well as a die-cut ring.  I glued them all onto my background after coloring my fairy with alcohol markers.  I also added some black dots for the sparkles.

I cut my panel to fit the cover of my notebook and sewed the panel onto my notebook cover with my sewing machine.

Here are the supplies I used from Simon Says Stamp:
