Approach with caution

Hello everyone,

and happy Wednesday ! Nellie is hosting the challenge over at the Stampotique Designers' Challenge blog. She wants us to use only 2 stamps and this is what she says :

"I tend to use a lot of stamps when I create something. Thought I might challenge myself and all of you by limiting the number of stamps. So no more than two stamps please!"

I normally use a lot of stamps too when I am creating so using only 2 was a bit of a challenge... I made up for it by using lots of paints, inks and stencils though ! 

Here is my art journal page :

Here's how I made it: 
I stamped Topher on a blank piece of paper and then used Dylusions Paints to colour the page. I used a brush and an old credit card today. I mixed the blue, the turquoise and the pink with white to make pastel shades. I painted around Topher. Next I did all the stencilling, using the black and white Dylusions paints and a bit of Distress Ink.
Next I used a bottle top for the circles and a creditcard for the stripes. 
After I decided I was happy with the background I coloured Topher with my Polychromos Pencils. Lastly I stamped the sentiment. I used these two stamps:

Why not come and play along with us. You might win one of two $30 vouchers for the online shop HERE. Just remember NO digi's and only one entry per person per challenge ! 
Good luck! 

Thank you for stopping by ! 


  1. This is so cute. I always wondered if you stamped directly onto your paper or if you (masterfully) stamped separately and attached it in some gloriously seamless way. Gorgeous page. I love it!

  2. These colours are so calming. Love your background and your colouring of the Stampotique image is gorgeous. Tracy x

  3. Mooi blauw...en die lijnen met de kaart zijn een mooie oplossing als je maar twee stempels mag gebruiken! Echt weer een page om even wat dichterbij te bekijken! Groetjes, Gerrina

  4. A stunning piece of mixed media with the background displaying your artistry with paint, stamps and stencils.

  5. Prachtig en wat een geweldige kleuren weer!

  6. Fabulous background and amazing colouring on the image - what a brilliant piece.

  7. Your page is fabulous Corrie!!!
    Sorry to not catch-up with all your previous posts, though I'm quite sure you have made great works that I should love I think. Happily I can see some of them tonight on FB! :) So gorgeous!! xx
