Stampotique Designers Challenge #74::Nature
The Stampotique Challenge this week was issued by Nellie and it is "Nature". I decided to use my Stampotique ((Hello)) and Mushroom Group stamps. That took care of part of the "nature" theme, the rest was satisfied by Dyan Reaveley's leaves and spider. I recently paid a visit to DeviantScrap.com and purchased the "Tangled Up" designs by Hidden Vintage Studios. Little girls with Zentangled clothing and hats, etc. Just download and print. Doesn't get any easier than that. Instant gratification. After stamping the mushrooms, I cut out the girl image, cut out a party hat and glued her on top of the mushrooms. The leaves are stamped randomly with Ranger's black Archival ink and colored in with their Distress Ink Markers. Then came the spider, hello and another bit cut out of the "Tangled Up" paper. I used my Star Gelly Roll pen to add highlights to the leaves and a tiny drop of Distress Stickles in the Scattered Straw color to the tops of the 'rooms. This card only took about 10 minutes to make so I believe I'll do an entire series of them showcasing all the cute little girls from Hidden Vintage.
