Stampotique Designer's challenge "New technique"

SDC 116 Nellie
This week's theme for the Stampotique designer's challenge  is to try a new technique. This is one of the first backgrounds I made with alcoholink on yupo paper after following a workshop. It's a lot of fun (and very addictive) to play with these materials. The outcome of this technique is quit  unpredictable, but that is what makes it fun too. These are the Stampotique stamps I used: Rain text and Floral flutter. Please join us in this challenge and show what new techniques you are mastering.

Have fun stamping!

Be Your Own Superhero!

Today's card features more of my favorite new stamps from the Fall 2013 release fromStampotique Originals! These are from designer Linda Peterson. I am so in love with her sweet little pointy-headed people!!

And isn't that sentiment just THE BEST? Love it!! The image is 12012 Superhero and the message is 12013 Superhero Text. I colored it with my Copics and made it crazy bright and happy with papers from Lori Whitlock for Echo Park and Amy Tangerine for American Crafts. I have developed a new theory in my crafting - my theory is that clouds make anything cuter. I went with that theory on this card. :-)

Thanks for stopping by!

New Images and a Blog Hop

Mega excitement, the new images from Stampotique are released today and...yes and there is a blog hop under way on the Challenge blog, so how is that for a super Sunday.
I have a quick make to share with you using one of the new images and a partial quote. I have changed the name on the desk from Ms Hazel to Miss Fox as this is made for my daughter who now is a qualified teacher after four long years of graduate education. She starts her first job tomorrow and this stamp was just perfect for a little Good Luck card for her.

Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog to join in with the blog hop as there a lots of goodies to be won.
