Infatuation with Stampotique

I'm not going to bore you by professing my undying Stampotique love again.
Well, maybe just one quick squeeeeeaaaaaaaal of excitement at being a Guest Design Team member for the month. Right, I've settled down now.

So the challenge this week at the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog is to 

Include a heart in your art

So I did!

I went for a sweet little ATC, using Moongirl, Mushroom group and you can just spy Daniel's Hearts fading at the back. The background is made with lots of spray inks, and the images are slightly watercoloured. Moongirl has a spot of sparkle on her wings.

I made the heart using a technique from Craft Stamper that I've used before- see my post here. It's simple really- twist some wire into a heart, place on a book page, then use glossy accents to fill the shape in- now she has a heart shaped Mr Darcy balloon!

Your turn- if you love your Stampotique as much as I do, then wear your heart on your art and have a go.

I'm going to enter this into a couple of other challenges- 
Allsorts challenge- Love is in the air
Stamping Sensations- Wings, fantasy and fiction


  1. She doesn't look as happy as u sound!

  2. A great project, Lisa! I am a big ATC fan because one can get a whole lot of art into a very small space! And, you have done exactly that here with Moon Girl. Photographing shiny, glimmering art is often difficult, but I can definitely see the sparkle in Moon Girl's wings! A great first project as February Guest Designer!!

  3. Great to have you aboard Lisa! I love ATC's and Moon Girl, you did a wonderful job :)

  4. This is beautiful, loving the color and love that it's an ATC yay!!

  9. This ATC is stunning! I love the whimsicality of it, yet it is also incredibly sophisticated. The color palette is lovely and I really liked the pop of blue on the fairy's wings. I adore the entire background that you created and the additional elements are so clever. Thanks for the tips on making that Glossy Accents heart embellishment! Totally creative. I enjoyed your write-up as well and always appreciate someone who can entertain through words as well as make gorgeous art. Thank you for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!
