Stampotique New Release!!

Oh yes!! Carol and Jim from ~{Stampotique Originals}~ have been working very hard to get the 18 new beauties out and there really is something for everyone in there!

You can see them all ~{here}~!

The Design Team have been playing and you can see what they have created on their own personal blogs which you can link to from the ~{Designer's Blog}~.

I have made 2 things to show on the Release Day - I couldn't decide which to blog first so I'm doing them both!

I have used ~{3044 Great Moon}~ by Jo Capper-Sandon
~{3045 Small Moon}~ by Jo Capper-Sandon - for the smaller background stars.
and ~{6017 Quasimoto 5}~ by Jill Penney - which isn't a new release, but works so well with the moon.
The background is made using watercolour crayons and gesso. The colouring is done using Twinkling H2O's.

I just LOVE the new mermaid stamps!! And I knew exactly what I wanted to use them for first off.

When my niece, Lucy, was 3 or 4 she used to get me to read The Little Mermaid to her over and over again. It got a bit boring so I used to change Ariel's name to other washing powders! She would shout 'it's Ariel!' at me and then, if I just called her Ariel, she'd say, 'do the funny names!' So that's why I have renamed the mermaids - I haven't been paid to mention them!

These are all Daniel Torrente's work (as if you needed to be told that).
So we have ~{6122 Smushallaum}~ as Ariel,
~{6121 Smushasha}~ as Persil, and
~{6120  Shumanha}~ as Bold 2 in 1 all on 4" canvases with painty backgrounds.

One of the layers on the background is ~{7098 Tangled}~ by Amy Wilson Wellenstein. It got a bit hidden so I've picked out some of the swirls with pink H2O. I also stamped this around the sides of the canvases.

I'm hoping to get some more made up later this week, but go and have a mooch around the blogs to see what loveliness the team has made.
