I got issued a crafty challenge a number of months ago. “Can I have a ninja calendar?”.
Let me tell you, those ninja’s are GOOD at being stealthy because ninja stamps are HARD to find. I finally found one set, neglected to order it right away and then the company closed and sold out of the set before I knew.
However, I lucked out and thanks to a swap on SCS, someone pointed me in the direction of Bugaboo Stamps and their seven ninja images. Yay!
Now, here`s the trick…finding the perfect ninja paper…do I make it all in black? That seems really boring!!
I was at one of my favorite scrapbook stores a few weeks ago and they tend to carry lots of clearance merchandise. What did I spy??? It’s non other than four patterns from the Graphic 45 Bird Song collection, an oriental themed collection. PERFECT!!! I scooped those babies up!
Here’s three of the six panels.
I did them each double sided, matching two patterned backgrounds to my 6×6 solid color card stock piece. Here is the opposite side of the yellow cardstock piece. I think this is one of my favorites!
I decided all black ninja’s would be too boring, so I colored them up and think they look pretty darn cute!
My ninja challenger was pretty happy with the finished project. And now, I want a ninja calendar of my own!
