Stampotique circles challenge.

I am just in lurve with Stampotique stamps at the moment, space I'm really not much of a colour but I have really enjoyed using these . I used distress inks and a white and black gelly pen with a waterbrush.   I am really quite chuffed with how this turned out and look forward to playing with them lots more.

 Are used Neenah desert storm card to stamp on and unicorn white heroarts ink.  Well to be honest I stamped loads of this cute girl in a variety of colours and inks.  Are you distress inks in spiced marmalade and tumbled Glass and weathered wood.  At first I thought I'd made a huge mistake as I come round the edges with the black pen and it was all smudgy but I persevered and kept playing around and love the way she turned out . When I fussy cut her I deliberately did a bit Jaggi as I think this suits the style of the stamp.
 I made the background using shattered coredinations card and a crafters companion embossing folder.  I love embossing this card and then sanding it back to reveal a really cool grungy look.  I used paper smooches thanks Die and cut it out of the desert storm card, white and the coredinations . I offset them slightly then used a bit of wink of Stella and glossy accents.
 Hi Cut out a few of the circles using the blue side rather than the black, added a bit more wink of Stella and glossy accents. the little sentiment I made on my computer .

 I make this card for the stampotique circles challenge

thanks for having a look, the stampotique challenges run until 5th of May so pop over and have a play

 take care

Fashionably late... nope just plain rude!!!

I'm really gutted haven't been able to post and play for a while but I've had a really bad fibro flare :( However, you still have a week left to play with us eclectic girlies :) the challenge this month is outside your comfort zone!

 I've been Loving the Stampotique creations that I've been seeing hopping around.  To me there is an eclectic mix of bright colours, fun and a little bit of grunge in the projects I have been admiring... reet up my street.  I have been really inspired by the wonderful owner of the Kathrywheel blog, her journal soup classes are just Awesome. I hadn't yet had a try so I treated myself to 2 new stamps and I have just been loving playing with them . I was further inspired by one of the challenges at the Stampotique blog, use stitching, way way outside my comfort zone.

 I am so super chuffed with how this turned out :)  My eldest daughter is taking her GCSEs and I am consumed with thinking of her and her  friends and what difficult time of life this is for them.  I love how this card is still fun and girly but not too cute and young for a teenager,   I think the stamps really help with this.

 I had no idea what I was doing when I started making these flowers. I just twiddled the string around caught it upwith the needle and fastened them off . They really add cool  dimension and texture.  it's something I will definitely be having a go at again .

 Something else that is completely outside of my comfort zone are shaker cards.  The sun is a mini shaker that I made using the packaging from Tim Holtz ideology Buttom package .  I then used my thread needle again and added little rays for the sun .

 I completed the card by using a faux stitch die down the side , and a hugs and kisses die.
 I popped the cutout part of the hugs and kisses die through the holes so you could also see them from the inside. I stand out we believe in you sentiment with the new lemon citrus ranger ink and voila.

 Again my apologies for being so late, hope you like it .

 Take care
Tracey :)
