The theme for the latest challenge at Stampotique is RECYCLED, brought to us by Valerie H Wilson. A good theme for me as I harbour so much 'junk' at home in the hope of transforming it all into something a bit different I was spoilt for choice over which bit of 'rubbish' to work with. I opted for this- a corned beef tin lid. One of those new pull ones.
I painted and heat embossed the majority of it, using a Prima mask and a bit of finger painting, then added my image and wording, attaching a bath plug chain to hang it up with.
This little guy from Stampotique, SMILE, was the perfect size.
...and with his MEDIUM BEE wings and the word angel from YOU ARE AN ANGEL , looks a real cutie. I drew his halo with white pen.
I hope you like it and are able to join in with ANY STAMPS (as its an any stamp week) but if you have Stampotiques in your collection it would be great to see those too obviously). Any entries to the challenge are in with a chance to be randomly drawn to win a $30 gift certificate. Only one entry per artist please as its such a large gift cert on offer.
Stampotique stamps are available from Stampotique directly (in the USA) or many outlets in the UK, one of which is HAPPY DAZE.
Talking of Happy Daze.....we are now on a different stand as previously mentioned at Port Sunlight and if you have a ticket to the show you will spot us immediately as you walk in to the large hall where I shall be demoing Stampotique Originals stamps. During my breaks, Joanne Wardle (another Stampotique DT member as it happens) will also be leaping into the demo seat.
