and happy Wednesday to you. Over on the Stampotique Designers' Challenge blog there is a new challenge up. This week it was the lovely Kaz who chose the theme 'Refresh it' and this is what she said :
"We all love playing with new stamps, but sometimes it's good to revisit some that have been neglected for a while. I'd like you to find an old favourite and give it a new lease of life."
I chose two stamps that I hadn't used in a long time and made a postcard with them :
I started with a postcard sized bit of a gelli print. I did some background stamping and splattered some white ink on it. One of the stamps I hadn't used in ages was 'Hexagon'. You can see it in the background. I stamped it with white ink and clear embossed it. Next I stamped 'Gooseneck'; she was my first Stampotique stamp and had been in the drawer for ages. Poor girl.... I coloured her with alcohol markers, clear embossed her and cut her out. I placed her on some washi tape. I adhered the leftover strips in the top left corner. (I also stamped her on the card so I didn't have to cut out all the hair. What I do to disguise the fact that I cut of the hair off of an embossed image is put some glossy accents over the hair that was stamped straight on the card. That way it all looks one piece !) I then stamped the sentiment 'Wicked'. Lastly I drew a line around the card and that was it !
I used the following stamps :
