Over at Stampotique this week, the theme is "Birthday" in honour of one of the DT's birthday. Happy Birthday wishes, Kim !!! So, out came my newest two stamps, Heart Throb and Teddy. I know there are much more recent stamp releases, but Stampotique stamps are rarely found here in Sydney. I really can't understand why, so I think it's time for me to start ordering directly from the source.
For the background I used a combination of Distress Inks, 'peacock feathers' and 'shaded lilac', then using Dylusions 'diamond border' stencil I again went over it with 'peacock feathers' and 'peeled paint' from top right to bottom left corners.
Next I fussy cut Heart Throb and his Teddy, colouring them with Distress Markers to contrast with the background. Using him as placement only, I then stamped "Hip Hip Hooray its your Birthday" using black Archival ink. Before popping him up on dimensionals, a couple of pieces of washi tape were added to ground him. Another piece of washi tape has been used for a 'ribbon'.
A little slit allows Heart Throb to hold Teddy under his arm, no escape for this Teddy!
You too can join in the fun at Stampotique.
