Hello everyone,

and happy Wednesday to you.
There is a new challenge up over at Stampotique and the lovely Gezzy is our hostess. She chose the theme "Favourite, favourite stamp!" and this is what she said :

'We've ALL got one! What's yours! We would love to see your favourite Stampotique images (if you can't pick one!) on your creations this week. Which stamp makes your heart skip a beat!'

Although I love lots of Stampotique Stamps, I always come back to little Smile. He is so cute and when you look back over my projects, he features quite heavily ! 

Sorry for the slightly wonky picture.. 
This page in my art journal was started with model paste and a stencil. When it had dried I brushed it with gesso and then coloured it with Lindys Stampgang Sprays and Magicals. I used 2 starbursts: Marigold Yellow Orange and Pretty in pink Pink. The edges were done with a magical in the colour Midnight Rendezvous. I decided to use some chipboards from my stash. I embossed them with WOW embossing glitter "Black glint".  The white stripes were done with acrylic paint and an old credit card. I also went around the edge with a blending tool and black soot Distress Ink. The background was stamped with "Fax to Wolfgang" but you can hardly see it.  I used my all time favourite stamp "Smile". I stamped him on tissue paper which I glued behind the frame and again on white card stock. I coloured him with Copic Markers, cut him out and adhered him to himself on the tissue paper. The whole thing was then adhered to the page. I used diluted white acrylic paint to lighten the area inside the frame. I then glued the other chipboard on and that finished the page. 

Here is a close up of the embossing. 

I used only two stamps:

Why not play along with us and have a chance of winning one of two $30 vouchers to spend in the online shop at the end of the month ! Just remember NO digi's and only one entry per person per challenge. 

Thank you for stopping by !
