...Love 'em or loathe them...you have to agree with me that Stampotique stamps have a certain unique quality that just draws your eyes to them! Over on't Stampotique Designers Challenge blog the latest theme is to use three colours with a fourth as optional
Optional - Blue
I made a big square tag for my entry this time...using Victorian Velvet, Mustard Seed & Forest Moss Distress Inks, which were swooshed onto a craft sheet and then spritzed with a Mini Mister filled with water and some yellow Perfect Pearls. The stamps used are Bow Tie and Marci. I have been longing for Marci to come and live in my Room of Stash for yonks now...and she finally moved in last week...hurrah and thrice, I can't stop using her...yes, she may look a bit rough around the edges, but sooo cute...and she certainly loves sitting up on the shelf next to Bow Tie...whom she has a secret crush on...hence...
The script, which for any old rockers out there, you will recognise as part of the lyric from Sharp Dressed Man by ZZ Top...yep, another glimpse into my misspent youth :O)) Now, the remit of the challenge is to just use Stampotique stamps, but once I had stamped and coloured Marci and her beloved, cut them out and 3d'd them, the background looked a bit bare....so I hope I can be forgived for using a couple of the new stitches stamps from the fabulous Wendy Vecchi's Studio 490 range. Oh, and to emphasise the words, I popped some Rock Candy cracklepaint over the top, doesn't show up too good on the pics, so please click on them to see it enlarged *oooer, missus*. Finally, the optional blue was used on Bow Tie's eyes, the stitches and the ribbon thru the top, which also has some beads which I popped onto headed pin jobbies (you can just see I am useless with jewellry and the like) cos I wanted something more dimensional just to finish it off.
Thanks for looking...have a great day...it is a beautiful sunny day here in Lutonia and I am going to make use of the natural light and spend some time getting inky :O))
