October Guest Designer

We are thrilled to announce our October guest designer, Sam Butler.  You've seen her around, she's a frequent player of our challenges and we are so excited to share her work with you.  Here's more about Sam and another creation for the current Stampotique Designer's Challenge.


Hi, my name is Sam aka Sam21ski. I’ve been crafting for quite a while now and like anything distressed and grungy.  I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials and am willing to give anything a go!!
My favourite colour is green, closely followed by brown and I am a great admirer of Tim Holtz.  I love fun and funky so the Stampotique images fit perfectly.  I also love all stuff PaperArtsy too!!
I have a 6 year old bearded collie called Fraser and a partner of over 20+ years called Martin.  The both put up with my antiques on the dining room table, as this is where I craft.
If you want to find out more about me, see what I’ve been up to or get in touch, you’ll find me here http://sam21ski.blogspot.co.uk/


Stamps used –


Background colour, various colours/layers of fresco paint, diamond stencils with vanilla fresco paint.  3 layers of bees wax.  Single tear image stamped in black versafine directly onto the wax.  Quote stamped onto white card, words cut and edged in black pen and stuck onto the wax.  ATC put into an ATC sized photo frame.

Congratulations on being featured as the Stampotique Guest Designer, Sam! You are one of the "regulars" here who continually inspires me and encourages me to try new things! Great ATC here, and love how you cut the quote apart to fit the smaller size. Genius!
