Jasmin and Moon Girl

Well I have got another few Stampotique stamps, having just received Moon Girl and two of Jo Capper-Sandon's new range - Jasmin and 'Even silence speaks'. So I will be able to put a little more variety in my entries for the Stampotique Designers Challenges in future! But you didn't think I would wait till the next challenge to try them out?? No way... as usual I wanted to use them immediately and these two cards are the results. For the Moon Girl card I used a salt wash background made with Adirondack dye inks, and a Tim Holtz mask on the lower half of the base card, AND a flourish using one of the new TH dies - I guess this one could be called Stampotique meets Tim Holtz!! The Jasmin card has a background panel using a Hero Arts stamp, Flower Silhouette, which I inked with Bundled Sage and Tumbled Glass DIs and then spritzed very lightly with water before stamping. I like doing this to soften and blend the 2 colours. Jasmin was coloured with copics, and the daisies made with a flower and circle punches.

Oh yes! I see what you mean! Only the crumbliest flakiest chocolate :0)

Beautiful colours on the Jasmin card. Give such a calm feeling. Those green boots are fab. I'm always on the look out for green suede ankle boots.
