Stampotique!!!!!!

Hi my crafty friends, Today I hope the sun is shining on you and all is well in your world, if not I jolly well hope it is soon! I have a Stampotique card today and I really hope you like it :D
This is for Sam's challenge Pink Turquoise and Polkas
Here we go
Loads of fun with this one, the colours are great together and I really enjoyed colouring her !!
Her background is a mask by TCW Mini Circle Basics, then I used a plastic bag that had been perforated with very small holes, I think it's for bread! I inked through it and got the tiny polka dots!!
I used;
'Spider wings', 'Birds and Bugs Cube'and 'Mela' by Daniel Torrente Then Tenticurl by Jo Capper-Sandon All from Stampotique
Distress inks in Peacock Feathers and Picked Raspberry

Lovely to see you and many thanks for all your good wishes, I am getting over this bug but goodness me it is taking forever!! Hugs Gay x

A great and lovely coloured card, Gay!!
You showed here that these colours fit perfectly together.
This litle girl is feeling fine with them at least.
Think I'm going to try this colourcombination with some of my own stamps.
Wishing you and Mela good luck in the challenge.

I love the aqua and pink combo Gay, and how clever of you to use the bread wrapper as a stencil (well done you)! The girl looks a lot like me, first thing on a morning (apart from the wings)! This really is priceless, and I love it!
Hugs, Sylvia xx

Hi Gay, just having a catch up. Love this card, the shades work so well together, and a great use of the plastic bag, gives a fabulous effect.

Congrats on being honored as a Design Team Favorite at the Stampotique Designers' Challenge site, Gay! Well deserved!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Well, um, bless her heart, Gay, but she is a little bit, um, facially challenged, and her wings seemed to be a bit misplaced, but oh, be still my heart, how beautiful is her bird, her background, her clothes, and even her shoes! I can just tell by that swell tail that her little pet is fabulous, too! Hugs, Darnell
