Woo hoo I've had time to play in two Stampotique Designers Challenges in a row! This week the theme is flowers - and I have made an ATC.
I came across this quote from John Lennon around the time the challenge was announced, and I knew just what I wanted to do, and I'm pleased to have found the time today to make it.
I began with white cardstock, and inked it up with distress inks (scattered straw, wild honey, rusty hinge and vintage photo). I stamped 'Blocks' by Stampotique (Maryse Carrier) then masked these off to stamp the background with Hero Arts 'Friends Definition'. Then I masked off the background to stamp 'Tiny Spiral' by Stampotique in Forest Moss.
My flower is made using 'Daniel's Hearts' by Stampotique (Daniel Torrente) which was coloured with fired brick DI and forest moss DI for the leaves. A bit of stitching, some doodling around the flower, and red paint dots to complete a frame finished off the design of the ATC, and then I added my quote coloured lightly with scattered straw DI and edging with a Zebra Sarasa pen.
I am also entering this ATC into The Artistic Stamper July Challenge - my plans for this entry kept interfering with my ATC plans for Stampotique, so I gave in and decided to combine the challenges. The challenge over at The Artistic Stamper for July is to use 'HOT' colours.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit :)
