Black and White with a Hint of Colour
Stampotique Originals latest challenge theme over on the Stampotique Challenge Blog is Black and White with a Hint of Colour (or Color, depending on where you live :0) )
I used a couple of the recently released stamps, Dragonfly and Dragonfly Verse along with a really useful favourite of mine Daisy, Daisy.
To create my 'hint of colour' I swiped an ink pad over white card and swooshed over a couple of shades of embossing powder to give a soft shimmery textured effect.
Please check out the challenge if you haven't done so already. A really simple one this time with another opportunity to be in with a chance of being drawn as a winner of a $30 gift certificate kindly offered by Carol at Stampotique Originals. This is an 'any stamps week' where all stamps are welcome, but if you do own any Stampotique images it would be great to see what you can come up with using those too.
If you are in the UK there are are number of stores that sell Stampotiques, the largest selection found at Happy Daze.
