Stampotique Challenge - Paint

Yeayyyyyy time again for a new challenge over at Stampotique - this weeks them has been set by the very talented Libby.  Here is what Libby has to say about her challenge:-

"Ever since I can remember I've been inspired by my Gramma Betty. She is an amazing artist. I grew up watching her paint sets for our local community theater group she co-founded, painting make-up onto the faces of the actors, painting beautiful paintings with her oils and painting gorgeous cheeseboxes with her acrylics. With a paintbrush in her hand, there's nothing she can't do!

I chose the theme for this week's challenge in honor of my amazing grandmother. She can paint with any medium, and so can you - acrylics, watercolors, daubers, whatever your little heart desires. Just use same sort of PAINT on your project this week!"

I decided to paint a plain door hanger that I have had in my stash for yonks!!  I used TH Paint dabbers to paint the background and used paint on the stamps too (remember to wash the paint off the stamps once finished).  I coloured Dweeze (6102) in copics, stamped Abstract Foliage (3031) around the edge in TH Paint Dabbers.  Painted through some sequin waste with dabbers, added the text Do I look like a freakin' people person (8987), a torn off sheet of text paper from an old book, added the black and white border and here it is......

Why not pop over to Stampotique Designers Challenge site and see what amazing creations my fellow Design Team have created.  Don't forget that each month 2 lucky people will win a $30 gift certificate to spend on Stampotique stamps!
