Hello everyone !

Happy Wednesday to you ! It is time for another challenge over at the Stampotique Challenge Blog and  this week the theme was set by the lovely and very talented Janet. She chose : 'Tin is in' and this is what she said :

" I am challenging you to use some form of tin in your artwork.  Consider incorporating craft tin, tin tape, an Altoid container, a repurposed tin can or any tin object to incorporate with your stamping.
Put on your "tinking" caps and join us in this challenge to have a chance to win some Stampotique stamps."
I made a little art journal:

I had this background lying around after experimenting with mixing Gel Medium with Mica Powder from Prima called Primary Elements. This colour is called 'Hot Cinnamon'. I scraped it onto some Mixed Media Paper and this was the result. I though it was perfect for these two love birds eh... cats..
I stamped 'Romatic Text' on it and silver embossed it to stay in the theme of tin or metal. 
Next I took it to the sewing machine and sewed around the edge. 

I bought these tin hearts from PaperArtsy at a fair somewhere and now they were perfect to use. I adhered a metal charm spelling love to one of them. I also put some twine through the holes. I adhered them  to the page with gel medium.
Next I stamped "Chessy", once normally and once reversed using a rubber stamp which is solid. What you do is stamp the image on the rubber and then stamp the rubber onto card stock and hey presto an image in reverse. Usually not perfect but you can fix this with a marker which is what I did. I also turned this one into a girl by giving her lips, a blush and eye lashes.. I coloured them both with Copic Markers, cut them out and adhered them to my page on top of some washi tape. 

Here's a close up of all this metal, doesn't it look yummy ! 

I used only two stamps for this:

Why not play along with us and win a $30 voucher for some of those yummy stamps.. 
Just remember NO digi's and only one entry per person per challenge....

Thanks for stopping by today !
