Stampotique Designer Challenge # 205
Had this idea for this last week but it seems to have taken me forever to get it going and then to get it finished.
The challenge was to use household items to create the background, and for some unknown reason (OK might be because I'm loopy) I decided to use a lice comb (kids not at school, hopefully not needed anymore) a mini grater and an empty pill packet.
Used some embossing paste coloured with Paper Artsy fresco paints, then used said items to make marks in the background to create a sea'ish background. Rubbed some watered down black paint in to dirty it up a wee bit. Stamped and coloured Smushasha, then used two sticks for the lice which Ive poked through her hair and tail.
Also used old book paper to write a newspaper article using my old typewriter, hence the gaps in the typing, oh well all adds to the feel of the piece.
So submitting this late for SDC #205, funny thought it would fit the theme for SDC #206 as well.
Please can anybody let me know if when you post a comment verification is on, as I've turned it off so many times, but apparently last week a friend had to compare salads to post a comment, !!!!
