A little splash of colour

Hello everyone,

and happy Stampotique day to you ! Time for another challenge over at Stampotique and today's hostess is the lovely, talented Carol. She wants us to use bright colours and this is what she said :

"Bright eye popping colours to brighten up November".  

So I did an art journal and I hope my colours are eye popping enough !

I started colouring a blank page in my journal with Distress Inks and a blending tool. I used "Mustard Seed", "Spiced Marmelade" and "Ripe Persimmon".  After it dried I put a stencil on it and sprayed water through it. That gives a nice lighter pattern. I also used a letter stencil with an orange spray ink and a dot stencil with model paste. Obviously the dots went orange because that is what Distress Ink does so I painted them white with a white paint pen. I then stamped the background here and there and doodled a few black lines around the page.
Next I stamped my main figure, he's my latest buy from Stampotique and I love him, I stamped him on the page and on white card stock. I also stamped the heart in his hand again with red ink. I coloured his face, wings, body and hands and cut these bits out. I then put him back together in the page. I found this sentiment on the internet and thought it was apt for this challenge so I typed it on my old typewriter, cut it apart and glued it on the page. Lastly I doodled around the word strips. 

I have used the following stamps: 

I hope you will play along with us this week ! There are 2 $30 vouchers to be won at the end of the month. Just remember only one entry per person and no digi stamps. 

Thank you for stopping by today !
