The lovely "Astrid " is hosting at the Stampotique dt challenge blog today.... and she says...

Hello, hello... it's my time to host and I choose Washi Tape for this challenge. Not really a hard one is it ;-) I adore this stuff and I think a lot of us do. I especially love the black and white ones, it makes the other colors you use really intense. And it's just an easy way to add something extra on your creation.
So use this happy stuff as a background or as an embellishment on your creation. Hope you like Washi Tape just as I do :-)
I used "Hazel heart" and "whole heart text"......Hazel is colored with copics on a piece of white cs..the border is sewn (ofcourse :)  Thanks for looking!

Gettin a little creepy...Halloween is coming you know!

Showing off some more of the new images at the Stampotique store.  ..
First up= "Hamlet of Halloween"  (by artist Jill Penney).  This was easy peasy..I had a piece of scrapbook paper with squares on it (Teresa Collins) I guess for a "life book" type project.  I cut one out and put it on cs.  I stamped Hamlet on and colored with copics  :)
Below I stenciled with some acrylics, sewed and added on a canvas tag.  Then I colored and cut out "sheep monster".  The sentiment is from a sticker sheet . 
Lastly I picked up "tinglyitchiness"  (artist Daniel Torrente) and put him on a sewed and stenciled backdrop.  I used "relax text" for my sentiment. 
Some fun stuff to play with!  If you haven't seen all the new images at the Stampotique store- what are you waiting for?  Thanks for looking!

Layer it up!

Sweet Sue is the hostess for the new challenge and she LOVES layers.  Make a creation with atleast THREE layers for the new challenge at the Stampotique designer's challenge blog.   I used "flying monkey"  from the new release at the Stampotique store (artist Janet Klein) and a little edge of the image " helping hands" (Daniel Torrente).  I really LOVE BOTH these new images A LOT  so I enjoyed putting them together for this card.  :)

My layers consist of...the grungie dp (lcs), acrylic paint thru a stencil (crafters workshop), a piece of red cs and a tag.  Then I stamped "flying monkey" and cut him out.  I popped him up on a white piece of cs that was punched out with a circle punch.   Sentiment is from a sticker sheet.  "Whatever.." is also from the Stampotique store.  Thanks for looking!
