One Layer Card with Stampotique

Gez, over at Stampotique, has given us a challenge this week to create a one layer card.  I had great fun creating this.

I used core paper which I layered a stencil over and sanded the gaps so giving the above effect of shading. I stamped Spider Girl with Black Soot Distress Ink and clear embossed her. Coloured her face and stockings with Promarkers. Stamped the words with a small alphabet set. Outlined the tress and embossed with Silver Pearl embossing powder. Darkened the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and there she was standing in the woods with her friendly spider. Not frightened away at all.

Alter it with Stampotique

Quail Spectacle Case

For this challenge at Stampotique I decided to alter my spectacle case. First I coloured it with alcohol inks. Then I stamped the quails onto tissue paper with Memento Black ink and coloured with Promarkers. Images torn out and stuck down with watered down PVA. 

I will never mistake my spectacle case again.

Sketch with Stampotique

I had a half hour play this afternoon and came up with this using the sketch challenge over on Stampotique. I rather enjoyed my little play and having  sketch to work to. For the ribbon section I have used a Tim Holtz die and set it proud above the card. I seldom use sketches, but I am not quite sure why?

I have used Strut Your Stuff, Flowers and Kisses from Stampotique.
The words "Live in the Sunshine" are from an Artistic Outpost plate which I enjoy to use.

Birds and Buttons with Stampotique


I have used a number of Stampotique stamps for this Birds and Buttons challenge. I have this paper pack that I really like and one of the images on the sheets is this girl with balloon. So firstly Star Bird was stamped beside her approving of the message she is sending out on her red "P" button balloon. I then created these imaginary birds with one of the Two Sticks. How I have used this stamp. It must be one of my favourites of all times.  Then created wings by using a heart from the Heart Cube stamp. They are double layered. Firstly stamped onto the card beside two sticks and then layered with iridescent foil. The buttons have the letters P E A C E stuck on them and placed on the balloon and the wings. The Peace sentiment was the starting point of this thought process along with the challenge,  Birds and Buttons.

I would also like to add this piece to Word Art Wednesday where by coincidence the theme is Peace,  and the second coincidence is that I was left a lovely comment on a previous post that highlighted this challenge to me. I like coincidences, they are often very special. So thank you.

Hope you enjoy.
