Stampotique Bookmarks and Blog Hop


There has been a magnificent program on BBC Radio 4, Classic Serial, Gormanghast and Titus Groan.
Absolutely stunning. I wish I could hear it again. So whilst listening to the series these Stampotique characters designed by Daniel Torrente kept jumping into the fore front of my mind. What better way to use them but with a bookmark to pay tribute to the wonderful books by Mervyn Peake.

This fellow is one of the Christmas Elfs and I thought he was best suited to represent Titus. I needed to change his head gear and find a more suitable attire for the heir of Gormenghast. I also like the way this change of headwear really changes the way you can use this stamp. It becomes more versatile for any season of the year. All of the stamps are from Stampotique: Elf, Splatter, Abstract foilage, Crown and Spirals. Sorry I cannot remember all the correct names for these stamps. The Crow is one of Tim Holtz's  as I do not have Moon Girl's Crow, otherwise I would have used this.

Ooh how excited am I. I just checked out Sunday Stamper and the theme is birds. I have a bird on my bookmark so it counts! Yipeee! Hiya Hun I am joining you again!
