Stampotique Designer's Challenge ~ Love or Valentine

It's time for another Challenge on ~{Stampotique Designer's Blog}~  and this time ~{Kim Howard}~ is asking you to make something with a love theme.

We are doing things a little differently this time as we now have lots of designer's on the team, all of whom are showcasing the many different styles you can create with the ~{Stampotique Originals}~ range. We will be revealing a few cards at a time over the next week, so don't forget to keep clicking back for lots of inspiration.

As it's the first challenge of the month, you can use any stamps on your project but, of course, if you have Stampotique's we'd love to see them. You can be in with the chance of winning the very generous $30 voucher to spend in the Stampotique store.



I made a background using watercolour crayons blended with gesso with a few painty circles stamped on it, then cut a heart from it and dotted the edge.

I used ~{9077 Bird Legs}~ by Janet Klein, coloured her with Copics and made sure she took a jewelled heart charm to wherever she was going. She wouldn't tell me, something about it being a secret on Valentine's Day!
