The Leopard Queen Meets 490...

...afternoon... tis me again... I know, two posts in one day... I am in the mood for waffling LOL You know the cake... yep, that stonkingly calorific choccy one... well, to go with it, I made a card... it was for an 18th so I wanted it a bit different and the girly who was turning 18 is so lovely and really special...so I used the Leopard Queen Stampotique stamp... along with some Studio 490 stamps to make the embelllie... and I then used Two Sticks by Stampotique and gave them a spikey headdress each... this has to be one of my favest stamps *er, you know I say that all the time but I really mean it with this one... it is so versatile!*



Now, I know that a lot of peeps are a bit sceptical about Stampotique and I know they are considered to be a bit "Marmite" in that you either love 'em or loathe 'em... but how can you not like Two Sticks? I did the colouring using ProMarkers... hence the state of my desk on Wednesday... and typed out a sentiment which was cut with Nesties and then distressed on the edges with Distress Ink. The stamps etc are available from The Stamp Attic... which BTW... if you check the webby over the weekend(ish) has some exciting news coming soon... all I will say is that...you can see a bit more of me... if you want to ;O)) *don't worry, am not going to be stripping LMAO*




Apparently... I have been told *thank you everyone BTW*... my latest project for Craft Stamper has made the front cover...but... erm.. well, you know we moved house? Well, I am a right slacker and have been meaning to "get around" to telling them my new addy... well it just serves me right cos I have had texts, emails and Facebook messages telling me my art is on the front... but... I haven't seen it!!! How frustrating!!!! Tis me own fault but...*how many "buts" can I get into one paragraph!!!* I was wondering... if any of you loverly peeps might be able to send me a piccie of the front so I can see it... I know, sad, but I am a teensy *ok a HUGE amountly* excited!! Anyways... I am off to have another lay down... been overdoing it so the old back is giving me some jip today... Thanks for looking...TTFN
