Today is my turn to come up with a theme for the new Stampotique challenge. Its an ANY STAMPS challenge (being the first challenge of the month) but if you have any Stampotiques it would be fab if you used those too. If you don't have any, why not?! lol....this is the perfect opportunity to win some as Carol and Jim at Stampotique are donating yet another $30 gift certificate for one lucky person drawn in a fortnights time.
Anyway....enough of the details...whats the theme? NEWSPRINT AND OLD BOOKS. I'd love to see what you can make using either. Whether its a page, an altered book, sentences cut out from the daily newspaper which have inspired you.
I made this as my contribution, but this has so much scope as a theme its endless. I used one of Stampotiques new mermaids, Smumanha (or 'the one with the pointy hair' as I like to call her), Swirl Stalks, Jo's Flower Cube and Splatter Long. I also used a punch to create little flower bursts of newspaper.
Another approach would of course to use stamps that have book/newspaper text on them such as French Text and Text Stars or any others you may have in your collection.
I hope you can find a bit of time to join in. I know you will wow me with your fab ideas!! The first 'batch' from the Stampotique Team are on the site now. Please check over there for the other contributions as the days go by.
All stamps available from Stampotique in the USA and Happy Daze in the UK, amongst others.
Hi..I'm 48, married with two sons, living happily in a small village on the southcoast of England.
I enjoy making things with a varied selection of inks, paints and stamps.
I hope you enjoy your visit and that maybe what I show here occassionally inspires you somehow, (but please add your own personal twists and touches, don't directly copy mine- wheres the fun in that?).
If ever I've given you any inspiration I'd love to see! Let me know please! :0)
Thankyou for visiting.
