Heads up for a Blue Moon!

(the big Stampotique blog hop starts here)

I love all of my Stampotique stamps, and some I'm yet to own, but I do have a couple of absolute favourites and Head is one of them, this little chap is just so lovely and versatile, you can do so many things with him!
For this weeks Stampotique Designers Challenge, Jane has given us a colour challenge of 'Mustard, Navy and Orange'. This really is a great challenge because it made me think really hard, I try to avoid thinking hard most of the time, but once in a blue moon is ok.
So here is my canvas it's 5in x 7in and is finished with some distressed beeswax, one of my favourite things to do to bring elements together and make things smell gorgeous.
It's worth a click to see the details if you have time.
Stampotique stamps used are a mixture of old and new and are: Flying Heart, Great Moon, Heart Vine, Head and 5 Petaled flower.
Here's a random fact for you: Blue Moon was first recorded by The Boswell Sisters in 1935.
I do hope you like my canvas and join in with the challenge.
Wishing you a day filled with love, Sam xxx
