It's only words....

...and words are all I ha-aaave... (altogether now..) ...to take your heart awaaaaaaay...

lol

Talking of words, this weeks theme over at Stampotique Designer's Challenge is 'Sentiment'. So please hunt out your Stampotique stamps and see what words you can put together with them either by using a Stampotique sentiment, hand writing, cutting up old books/newspaper or by using computer generated words.




I did some sloshy painting and markmaking in a journal that I'd rediscovered and along with Stampotique stamps the Queen of Life, Crown Quote and Splatter Long had a pleasant time making this.




As usual, I kind of made it up as I went along ...added marks here and there, inked up corrugated card and stamped that, cut up newspaper (as you can see the huge 'rain drop' hanging circles have weather related wording on them)




Hope you like it. In real life it has a bronze/gold shimmer to it in places and catches the light every now and then.




Please check out the other members of the Stampotique DT contributions. As always there is a wonderful and varied selection, something for everyones style and taste I'm sure. We hope you will join us for this challenge and maybe be the winner of a $30.00 gift certificate for stamps to the Stampotique store! Please remember you must use STAMPOTIQUE stamps to qualify to win and only one entry per person.

Gorgeous! How is it time for another Stampotique challenge already? Those two weeks sure passed in a blink.

I really, really like this. All the texture, colour, the special touches, the composition. This is a very special piece.

Love it Jo!! Your big rain drops are very clever, but haven't you seen enough rain?! I think we are becoming even more obsesssed by the weather this "summer"!
I don't have many Stampotique sentiment stamps so not sure if I'll be able to play this time (as so often!)... must buy some more..lol!
take care.

This is brilliant! Great texture! Fabulous sentiment and I love how your baubles of text are all about weather - that kind of detail really appeals to me. Hugs, Lesley. PS and I'm still chuckling over the name of your blog!
