I'm super excited to be hosting this weeks challenge at Stampotique and I would love to see what YOU can create using some of my favourite things.
I love pink and turquoise together, they work so well, whether bright and happy or delicate hues are used, I also love polka dots, I own so many things that are spotty, Poppy and I even have matching spotty accessories!
For my pink and turquoise spotty creation I used a slide mailer that had been laying around for an age, I removed the front, punched some holes and gave it a coating of gesso and then painted it ivory. I painted some card with pink and turquoise paint and stamped the bird cage, the butterfly and the sentiment, I then glued these to the slides. The dog and butterfly were stamped on white card and coloured, these were then glued on top of the slide, then another slide placed on top, this gives the impression of a background and an image encased in glass, it's hard to show in a photo! Turquoise ribbon was added to the back and then the slides were stuck in place. Beads and wire added decoration and the ability to hand the mailer.
The stamps I used are:
and Floral Swirl
I really hope to see lots of you join in our challenge and I can't wait to see your wonderful creations.
Wishing you a wonderful day, Sam xxx
