SDC 171 Favourite Colours

This week's ~{Stampotique Designer's Challenge}~ is set by ~{Nellie}~ and she would like us to use our favourite colours. Mine are bright pink, turquoise and lime green.



I started out by stamping one of the ~{Circles Cube}~ into the centre of the card and added 3 of the ~{Quails Cube}~ around it. I've watercoloured these and watercoloured the inside of the circle. 

I coloured some of the lines on the circle and added a stem. Whether it's a flower or a sign, it's a bad idea to put 3 quails on it. Bad Idea is on the new ~{Barcode Text 2}~.

I finished off with some doodles around the edge.

Tando Free For All Revisited

For this week's Free For All from ~{Tando}~ I'm re-showing this ~{Christmas Tree Mini Book}~ as Di has said they are selling well at the shows she's been attending recently. 


This was made back in 2010 and I used it to make a Christmas Cocktail Menu. The recipes are from ~{Whattodrink.com}~


I covered the pages with patterned papers and inked the edges, then punched holes using a crop-o-dile and tied ribbons through the ends.

I also tied the pages together themselves using ribbon. This enables the Mini Book to be stood up as a 3D centrepiece.


The ~{Seasons Greetings}~ is also by Tando and has been painted and covered with glossy accents.

As this is an older product, it's not found often in stores, but you can now buy it directly from the       ~{Tando Store}~.

SDC 170 Goblins and Ghouls

This week's ~{Stampotique Designer's Challenge}~ has been set by ~{Kristen}~ and she wants to see some ghouls and goblins. You can go wrong with this trio:


I trimmed a bit of card to just smaller than the card blank and stamped ~{Circles Cube}~ onto it then cut the inner bits out. I drew in pencil on the card blank where the circles would be and stamped ~{Gobby Lin}~ and 2 characters from ~{Halloween Cube 1}~ in them. 

I've watercoloured the images and added a mask over the front piece of card, finishing off with shenanigans from ~{Barcode Text #2}~ and a few doodles.

SDC 169 Purple, Pink and Black

This week's ~{Stampotique Designer's Challenge}~ has been set by ~{Carol}~ and she would like us to use purple, pink and black. I've used some more of the ~{New Release Stamps}~.


I've stamped part of ~{Romantic Text}~, which is a lovely BIG stamp, directly onto the card blank and then splatted some distress stains over the top.

On a separate piece of card I stamped ~{Unicorn's Cousin}~ ,who I adore, and watercoloured him before cutting him out. 

He was stuck onto a piece of washi tape and I finished the card with ~{Happy Birthday!}~ and some doodles.

Lion King ATC

It's been a long time since I made something 'just because', but with the ~{New Release}~ of Stampotique stamps recently, I had a little play and made this ATC:


The background is gelatos and paint and I stamped ~{Romantic Text}~ and the stars from ~{Design Cube}~ and added doodles.

I've stamped the ~{Crown}~, masked it and stamped ~{Happy Lion}~, then watercoloured them and cut them out.

I cut a slice from the ~{Grass Flexistrip}~ by Tando, painted it and doodled on it, then stuck everything together.

I finished off with some rub on letters.

SDC 168 Book Pages

This week's ~{Stampotique Designer's Challenge}~ has been set by ~{Corrie}~ and she would like us to use book pages. I'm using some of the ~{New Release Stamps}~ and couldn't resist this:


I have randomly torn and stuck book pages down on my journal pages and given them a coat of white acrylic paint, then splattered some inks over them. I used one of the ~{Circles Cube}~ as a top and bottom border and coloured the inside with a Big Brush Pen.

Both ~{Peggy}~ and ~{Buru !}~ are on gelli print backgrounds with a bit of ~{Design Cube}~ and are stuck over some washi tape.

I stamped ~{Art Junkie}~ directly onto the pages and coloured them with Big Brush Pens and added the F from the ~{Altered Alphas}~.

I've finished off with some doodling and gelato shading.

Tando Black and Orange

For this week's colour theme on ~{Tando}~ of black and orange I made this card:


I've cut the stem off one of the ~{Flowers With Stems Grab Bag}~ and painted it orange and blended it a lot. Then I finished the blending with a Faber Castell Big Brush Pen. Finally I painted the centre black and added glossy accents to it.

I've used the ~{Long Flourish Mask}~ with Wild Honey DI onto a piece of card just smaller than the card blank, stamped a greeting, doodled and put everything together.

Keep checking the ~{Tando Blog}~ this week for more inspiration.
