Stampotique Challenge - Eggplant Hues

Wahayyyyy its that time again!!!  The new challenge over at Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog is being hosted by the very talented Sarinda (who is also a glass artist) who has chosen the eggplant hues below.  

I started off with a piece of white card, spritzed it with water, daubed some distress stains (Fired Brick, Walnut Stain and Scattered Straw) on my craft mat and pulled it through a few times to create the background.  I then stamped Fabulous (8990) and highlighted it with white Gel Pen.  I stamped around the edges with Abstract Foliage (3031) , added some text from an old book.  Smile (6078) was coloured in with copic pens, cut out and added to the background.  A little TH crown was added, mounted the whole thing on black card, cream card and black card again and here it is..... 

Why not pop over to Stampotique Designer's Challenge to see all the lovely designs the Design Team have created and join in with us. You could win one of two $30 gift certificate which is pulled from ALL the participants for the month of August. You can use ANY images too.

Thanks for looking
