Stampotique Challenge 20 - Bling Bling!

A lovely opportunity to go mad with the gems and glitter on this latest Stampotique Designers Challenge... and have I used lots of glitter, from glitter card, glitter embossing powder and loads of Stickles of course, and all in my favourite pink!

Stampotique Challenge 19

Here is my card for the latest Stampotique challenge on the theme of 'girly girl'. I have used Stampotique's Moon Girl along with a few other stamps including the background which is by Hero Arts.

Inky backgrounds

Here are a few cards I have just made using some ink & water backgrounds - I have been playing about with Distress Inks, water, salt and cling film. The first two are using the results of the salt wash technique, and the third card using cling film. I do love making my own backgrounds and of course each one you make is unique! Stamps used on these cards are by ISC, Basic Grey, Stampotique, PaperArtsy and Art Journey.

Stampotique Challenge 18

The theme for this Stampotique Designers Challenge is 'spooky, creepy, crawly' and we can use only Stampotique stamps. For my entry, I have created a background using Distress inks and Glimmer Mists, having first smeared some white acrylic paint on with my finger for a moon, and used almost ALL the Stampotique stamps I own! I even used the beak from 'Strut your stuff' for the tiny hats on the stick things.
