Stampotique Designers Challenge 2 (SDC2)

I luurve stampotique stamps, dont know where I first saw them but just love their unique quirkyness, have taken lots of inspiration from the lovely Jo Capper-Sandon, who does absolutely brilliant work with them and others.

So was chuffed to hear about the stampotique challenge from SDC, slightly thrown by the cheery spring colours of rose, yellow and moss green, but have managed to use them by stamping onto some paper I had that fitted the critieria.


Decided my girl needed lamposts so googled some lampost images and came up with this great parisian scene which I image transfered for a more grungy look, thought my image disappeared into the scene a bit so used some torn white vellum to lift her out a bit using my new fave toy, Tims mini stapler, (glad I ordered some refills going thru them at a rapid pace), LOL, then tried various things to put on as an accent, flowers didnt seem right but these scrunched up circles that you can use to make flowers, worked for me and couldnt resist putting some more stampotique images on, and then the title Rain drops came to me. I hope you like, I really, really enjoyed making this.
