I'm back today with an entry into the Stampotique Designers Challenge 10. This week you had to include a Stampotique stamp, and base your creation around the theme freedom.
I have made an ATC (I know, I kind of went outside the dimensions with my image - is this allowed in ATC rules ???) I was going for a juxtaposition between free/wild. My wild 'Newt with Lunch Box' stamp and the freedom represented by wings. My ATC is called 'Born to be
I started with the 'Honeycomb Background' stamp from Stampotique, which was clear embossed. I then distress inked the background (spiced marmalade, crushed olive, spun sugar, scattered straw, victorian velvet, walnut stain) and then overstamped the corners with the same stamp, clear embossing with victorian velvet and spiced marmalade, and a little rock candy in those same corners. Then I tore it up, and mounted part as the background, and a small piece in the top corner, with a piece of Bo Bunny scrap paper imbetween.
'Newt with Lunch Box' was stamped with archival ink, and coloured with pencils and tombow pens over the top. The word 'wild' was crossed out using DMC antique thread E310 and an over-sized, crooked cross stitch, and replaced with a back stitched word 'free'.
The wings were die cut using Tim Holtz Alterations butterfly out of a piece of firm plastic from a stamp packet (honestly - I saw Tim do this....) They were inked with Alcohol Ink (lettuce, butterscotch, wild plum and gold mixative) and the tips stamped with stazon using the 'honeycomb background'.
Thanks for sticking around if you got to the end of my post today ;)
