Mort Journal



I picked up several of these little hard-backed kraft-covered journals last week, thinking that they'd make good stocking fillers, once suitably decorated.

I stamped the word "journal" onto the front cover, then made this sleeve to go around the book. The stamp is called "Mort had a pin curl", by Stampotique. Isn't that a great name? He was coloured in using promarkers an then masked off and the background was coloured with distress inks. Since he's sporting a great set of fangs, I'm going to enter him into my friend Hels' Sunday Stamper Challenge this week, which is "Monster Mash".

Is it wrong that I think Mort is adorable?? LOL. I am really into monsters right now for some reason. Maybe it's the halloween spirit.

LOL... loving your little Mort guy!! He really is cute in a weird sort of way... I can't believe you are getting organised for 'stocking fillers' already!!

I just love these stampotique images. I don't do cute but I think these come under quirky rather than cute.
