Stampotique Sketch



The challenge this week at Stampotique Designer Challenge Blog is a sketch given to us by DT member Kim Howard. I think 'receipes', sketches and colour combinations are, for me, a tricky way of working as I have a real tendancy to drift way off course and add 'stuff' that isn't allowed as I rarely end up making what I set out to in the first instance lol

So here is my contribution...

For the main panel I freely painted and scratched the background, added stamps and glitter.

Stamps (Splatter Long, Smushasha and Quiet Place, are all by Stampotique Originals, available direct or here in the UK from Happy Daze.

Theres a $30 Gift Certificate to be won by a randomly drawn participant at the end of the challenge so its certainly worth taking part.

This week is STAMPOTIQUE STAMPS ONLY TO BE USED please.


oooopps...edit to say - Here's the sketch!
