Hello everyone,

and happy Wednesday. This is the last challenge for this year for Stampotique. Where did the time go? Seems like only last week that it was Christmas. Anyway, this week's hostess is Claudine and the theme is "Alphabets".  Here's what she said :

"Use your alphabet stamps or images to create a letter of the alphabet" 

So I created the "C" for Corrie or (wonky) Chandelier lol....

I started with a piece of Mixed Media paper on which I drew the "C". I used one of those cardboard letter that are used to make words in interior design and drew around it. I then cut it out so I had a 'stencil'. I put this 'stencil' on my paper and stamped the flowers through the hole. I also stamped the flower twice on masking paper so I could stamp them behind each other. When the "C" was full I took the mask off and coloured everything in. I used Copic Markers and Pencils. 
Next I coloured the background with my Pan Pastels. I hadn't used them in ages so that made a nice change. I then used two different stencils and a background stamp to make it all a bit more interesting. I did use the "C" that I cut out to mask off the coloured "C" on my page as not to get any ink on it. 
I then decided to stamp the chandelier, thinking I would use my home made stamp positioner but still didn't use it so it got on there wonky ! Never mind.... I coloured it with pencils and I used a white paint pen for the candles. I then I stamped Mela, coloured her, cut her out and adhered her to the page. Lastly I drew two black lines around the page. 

I used the following stamps:

Carol's flower small
Journey collage
Gothic Chandelier
