Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Three or More Patterned Papers

It's the first Saturday of the month...so that means it's time for a new Penny Black Saturday Challenge...and this month the theme is:

'Three or More Patterned Papers'

We are sponsored for this challenge by:

Prize - a $20 voucher

I love patterned papers...in fact I have what might be deemed an unhealthy amount of paper pads in my collection! I picked papers from my 'Wildflower' pad by My Mind's Eye to cover a notebook (bought from Hobbycraft ages ago in a sale). I inked the edges using 'Pumice Stone' Distress Ink, then distressed them a little before adding faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. I added the entire 'Doggone Sweet' stamp set (including sentiment) to the front...I coloured the cute dogs using watercolour pencils.


 I covered the front and back of the notebook, and managed to use eight different papers in total!


I'm also entering this notebook into the following challenges:
