Inky Demo...and its up north!!



Wednesday Stamper's challenge this week is inky backgrounds.

Here I used a selection from the Jenni Bowlin range on this wooden hinged arch. Stamps are all from the Jo Capper Sandon range at Stampotique Orignals.

And talking of Stampotique stamps and Jenni Bowlin inks, I've now managed to confirm that I'll be demoing Stampotique Originals stamps on the Happy Daze stand at the Happy Stampers stamping show held in Hulme Hall at Port Sunlight which is in Merseyside, North West UK, so hopefully will see one or two of you there on May 14th.
Entrance is by ticket purchased in advance only from Happy Stampers. Visit the HSNW website for details.

Really looking forward to it!

Jo, This is outstanding. I love how you achieve depth in your stamping and inking.......the right side of the arch appears as though you're looking deep into the night sky.........

I just lurve your work, the background is great and I love the way all your stamps work together so well, anyone would think you designed it that way, LOL

Shannon said...

I love this piece of artwork you made. I love how the colors are subtle and still the images pop and stand out. Your talent just seems to get more stunning as each month passes. I love the use of your stamps, especially the stamps that are for embellishing....like the stars and the little swirls. You do a wonderful job at marketing them, because your work always makes me want to run over to Stampotique and buy every stamp that you have used in the artwork I've viewed most recently.

LiveArt said...

hugs, smiles and applause,
Linda

Cath Wilson said...

Gorgeous work, Jo and I'm thrilled that you'll be up my end, at Port Sunny. We'll finally get to meet, all being well :D Something else to look forward to, not to mention Happy Daze being there - drat. More pennies to be spent!!!

Where have I been to not have realized that these amazing and funky stamps were designed by you??? I had no idea and I just love them!!! It's been far too long since I've played along with Wednesday stampers and when I get back from my vacay I hope to get back into the groove!
