STAMPtember - Stampotique and Simon Says Stamp

Hi everyone :)

I have spent some lovely time this afternoon getting inky, painty and messy.  I have created a birthday card, and will be taking part in two challenges.

The current challenge at Stampotique is to combine stamps.  That's right, take two (or more) stamps, and combine them to make a different/new image.

And Simon Says Stamp & Show is celebrating stamping this month, and their current challenge is "read all about it" - alternatively your entry needs to include stamping.


The background is distress inks with a bit of water splatter and stamping with circular items, bubble wrap and tulle.  I have combined 'Head' and 'Oliver' by Daniel Torrente for Stampotique to create a new image.


I have stamped 'alphabitties' on book text which I had attached to some cardstock and sprayed with Dylusions inks.

I think I have covered all challenges here - create a new image, check, incorporated some book text, check, included lots of stamping, check.

Thanks for popping in!

Love his big head with his skinny little body! Great colors, love seeing how everyone gets inky (i'm too anal for that), but definitely enjoy seeing everyone's stuff. Thanks for joining us at Stampotique Designer's Challenge.
