Sooooo, that means this month I'm going to have some smashing Stampotique projects to show you.....starting with my favourite creation this year so far- maybe even ever! I wanted to start the month off with a splash, but I couldn't decide which stamp to use...... so I used them (nearly) all.......
This started off life as a thimble display cabinet, so it's not very big, but it was crying out to be the new home of lots of Stampotique critters. All made mini with shrink plastic.
This is what it looked like when I was halfway through the painting.
Lots of Crackle stuff on the sides....
All of the Stampotique images are on shrink plastic, coloured with normal coloured pencils.
I went through my salvaged bits box and added lots of chess pieces, and little charms.....
....a couple of Letter Ls, my lucky number 7, and some bling from some old costume jewellery.....
....an old earring, the pull from a zip, and a couple of old springs.
Hunk got added wings.
The Stampotique characters are hot glued on.
My little monster :)
The top skeleton fish charm was from a steampunk set.
What do you think? I love it, and for once, I don't think I'm going to give it away.... it's a keeper.
