Stampotique Challenge - Scrap IT!!!

Wahayyyyy time again for another challenge over at Stampotique and this weeks theme has been set by the ultra talented Jo - Scrap It!!!!

This is what Jo has to say about her theme:

It's my turn to set the theme this week at Stampotique Designer's Challenge soI decided on something that I usually avoid- using photographs along sidestamping. No.... come back... don't panic, it's not as scary as it sounds!As a non-scrapper I too feel that fear that perhaps washes over so many when the word 'scrapping' is mentioned, but this challenge theme can incorporate your photographs in anyway possible either on a page, inside a journal, on a canvas, a mini book, an altered item...anything you wish, just as long as you are using stamping somewhere too. If you are a natural scrapper, this theme couldn't be better! And if you are not, make it work for you. Please take a look at the fantastic contributions from the team to see how diverse the artwork has turned out to be."

I love scrapbooking :O) and I have been waiting to use this lovely photo of my daughter for some time now.  The stampotique stamps I have used are Damask (5806)   Fabulous (8990)  and Jo's own designed stamp Leaf (3024).  I created the background by marking off 1.75" squares, stamping the damask stamp inside the square and then in between them - as easy as that :O).  I used a Martha Stewart round the edge punch to create a delicate frill to the page.  Jo's Leaf was stamped on green cardstock twice, cut out and crinkled up and added to some flowers.  I added a couple of white corner rub-ons to the page and a black diamate flourish and here it is........

Hope you will pop over to see what all the creative and talented design team have created - honestly they are all so different their pages will blow you away.

Thanks for looking
