Hello fellow Crafters,

Today the second Challenge for the Stampotique month over at the "Craftorij" was announced by Coby and she chose Autumn. Why not hop over and play along ?
Anyway, this is what I made:

I decided to make another ATC and started with rounding the corners. This just looks that bit nicer, I think. I then used Distress Inks in orange, green and brown to colour the paper. The brown was mainly used to age the edges. I splattered some water on it to create some interest and also used a background stamp in the same colours. In the top left corner I stamped a bit of tree from an Indigo Blu stampset. The white circles were made with a cap and white ink. I chose the sentiment first and this made me think of this Stampotique stamp straight away ! You can find him here. He was stamped on white paper, coloured with watercolour pencils and clear embossed. He was placed on a bit of old dictionary. The quote was printed on some Kraft paper, aged with brown distress ink and glued on. Lastly I doodled around the quote with a black pen.

Thanks for stopping by !

Hope you like it......

  5. "Smile" is the perfect Stampotique image for your quote, Corrie--it doesn't get any better than that!! I love your soft muted Fall colors, especially how it ages your dictionary text! Just beautiful!
