Sunday Stamper - Week 164 - Back To Black

Goodly Morning Stampers, happy Sunday to you all. Firstly, many thanks for the fab creations that you entered last week, it was grand to see so many big and blousey flowers out there. Now, this weeks Sunday Stamper theme was making me think yesterday afternoon because I couldn't seem to come up with a new one. And then I heard the incredibly sad news that Amy Winehouse had died, aged 27. So, it seemed only fitting to have this weeks challenge as a tribute to her. For newbies to the Sunday Stamper... the Sunday Stamper always has a song title for the challenge title and the theme is linked in with it. I had a wealth of songs to chose from but this one just seems the most apt, also it is an album title too. So, the theme this week is BLACK. To join in with the challenge is simples, make a little something, be it what you fancy... add in the theme and some stamping and then leave a comment for me here along with a linky to the place you are showing your entry. I can then hop on over to have a nosey. The challenge will remain open until 18:00 Saturday 30th July 2011. **please note the early finish :O)**

Here is a link to You Tube so you can go and listen to her beautiful voice... AMY **Edit... I am so sorry peeps - I have just been made aware of comments left on this You Tube video... I am disgusted that there are so many judgemental people who see fit to speak ill of the dead... please do go and listen to the song... just don't read the comments, they aren't worthy of being looked at xx**



So, my entry in another T'Pouch. I make no secret of the fact that my fave papers in the whole wide world are Avenue by Crate Paper... and I am a bit tight when it comes to using them... but this project just needed them... so I bit the bullet and cut into them.



The background of the tag and then card front on the pouch are done by smudging my Black Soot blending tool onto the craft sheet and spritzing with water... this gives a much more subtle Wrinkle Free Distress look rather than smooshing the pad direct to the craft sheet... and I then paired the black up with Aged Mahogany for edging and colouring the butterflies.



The big flowers are made from Avenue paper, using the Tattered Florals Alterations die and layering the spikey daisy up and popping an Idea-ology Accoutrement into the centre. The leaves are Tattered Leaves Alterations, again cut out of Avenue paper.




So... that is my entry for this weeks theme... I hope that you will all agree with my reasons for chosing this tribute to Amy Winehouse... I hope that now she has the peace that she couldn't seem to find on this earth. Right... enough chatterings... time to craft again... thanks for looking... big hugs for everyone.... TTFN

Awesome, awesome project Hels, I love it. So sad about Amy, she had great talent, for sure. I really like her music.

Li'l Pidge said...

A fitting tribute Hels, such a shame she never got the better of her demons-such a talent.

I decided to make a black time machine tag which can be found here:

Shelly Hickox said...

Truly a gorgeous piece of art!! I was so shocked to hear about Amy's death...she was one of a kind and had a rare talent. Very tragic.

Thanks so much for hosting - sorry I'm so late, but here's my tag!

Shelly Hickox said...

Hi again! After I reread your challenge description, I removed the Sunday Stamper tag from my post. I didn't really do a tribute and I didn't feel right in including it with all the other wonderful pieces!

Sue Campbell said...

I thought Black would be a hard challenge, but after seeing yours and some of the other entries I saw how gorgeous they were.

Helen said...

Hi, it's taken me a few days but I got here!! That is such a pretty tag.

Hi Hels, I'm a great fan of Amy's - I think the world will be a sadder place with her in it - so just had to join in with your tribute challenge for the very first time. You can see my contribution here:
