Stampotique Sketch Challenge



I've been a little quiet on here due to my Mum being suddenly rushed to hospital. But there are times when I'm needing to keep busy and am managing to make the occassional simple piece.

This weeks challenge theme at Stampotique Designer's Challenge has a sketch for you to experiment with.

For this card I used Daisy Daisy and Jasmin, both from the Jo Capper-Sandon range at Stampotique Originals.




I hope you manage to take part. Please check it out and show us your version- even flip it on its side. Don't forget to pop over to the challenge site first though to read all the info and to see more ideas from the Stampotique Design Team.



The stamps used are available either directly from Stampotique Originals in the USA or here in the UK from Happy Daze.


Thank you for stopping by x

It's lovely, Jo - so simple but so effective. Hope your Mum's soon better and that life gets a little easier. I especially sympathise cos my son's in hospital at the moment (again) and I know what it's like when visiting and phone calls take over your life! Time is precious but creating is a must whenever we can - it's a great stress alleviator.
