Its time for a new challenge at Stampotique Designer's Challenge blog and the theme is POLKA DOTS!
I decided to use my FLAMINGO stamp to show how, when I designed it, I envisaged she could be used as well as using it as a stand alone image, which will perhaps explain why its so large.
The woodblock mount of the Flamingo measures 3" x 5.5" !!( and so therefore is perfect to carry a number of Stampotique characters on its back. :) Ones that could perhaps look great having a ride are Moon Girl, Stella, Dance Party Break Up, Wicked Witch, Chessy, maybe even Polka Dot Dog (perfect for this challenge but I dont have that stamp sadly) and RELAXIN..(which I used on this occasion. Pretty much anyone can sit on the Flamingo with a bit of clever scissor work :)
I began by using sequin waste as a stencil and blended distress inks through it to add the dots to the background, then piled on the watercolour, finishing with a few dots of white pen and black biro around the drawn frame.
This Polka Dot challenge lasts for two weeks...hope to see you there!! x
