Smudgy Antics Challenge - Anything Goes!

For the next two weeks the challenge at Smudgy Antics is Anything Goes!  
We want to see it all.
Got out those stamps, and get crafty!

It is Week 1, so come by and check out all the great 
projects and inspiration that the Design Team has created.

Don't forget to check back next week to see more.
We would love to see you playing along.

For this challenge I have created a notebook Birthday gift for a friend.
I love this digi stamp, Tightrope Girl, from Smeared Ink and guess what?
Smeared Ink is offering the set, Carnies, that this image came from,
for December's Smeared Ink Rubber Stamp Club.  Woohoo!!


Defying Details
Closed this notebook holder measures 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".
I have used Stampin' Up! card stock (cs) and the retired Designer Paper from the paper pack called Bella Blue. 
Cloudy Day Embossing Folder (retired) for the background.
Tightrope Girl is printed onto Very Vanilla cs and colored in with markers and a Blender Pen.
She is fussy cut.  Crystal Effects over the eyes, mouth, hair, wings, corset, arm bands, tears in stocking, feet, and umbrella.

Saying is stamped in Black Staze On.  
It is from a past Smeared Ink Rubber Club offering, Grumpies Occasions.
I cut out and adhered to front with dimensionals.

Other embellishments used:
3 button brads for her from from the Vintage Trinkets.
Small Rhinestone Jewels for the umbrella.
Dazzling Details (like Stickles) for shine on ruffles and wings.
Baked Brown Sugar 3/8" Ruffle Stretch Trim for the tightrope.
Black web ribbon from stash along left side.
All materials used are Stampin' Up! and are current unless otherwise noted.
