Weird girls

Wow, 2 posts in one day.......

I had a couple of new Stampotique stamps last week, they're from a fabulously horrible set by Daniel Torrente and Jill Penney. Click here to see more stamps. Inspired by a Craft Stamper article I came up with these 2 beauties.....

Whiner is my favourite for some reason!

The background is painted with acrylics quite roughly, I didn't take much time over blending colours in. I then stamped my girl image onto the ATC where I wanted her- I knew I'd want to stamp her again on white card to colour and cut out, but there are a few fiddly bits I thought might not cut out well, so by stamping her onto the ATC first I made sure I didn't miss any bits! Plus it helps with positioning the background stamps to have an image to work around.

The background stamps were from Prima stamps- the distressed checkerboard works really well, it allows the background colour to come through whilst still being quite dark. The other background is like a mesh- again from Prima. The crest is one I was sent as a freebie from an ebay purchase, which just happened to be lying about on my desk when I needed something! I nearly used a postmark.

I restamped the girl onto white card with Memento ink because I wanted to colour with Promarkers and it doesn't bleed into the pen colours. Finishing touches were those little phrases on cloth (from 7 Gypsies) and some white gel pen for highlights and faux stitches.

I now have a loooong wish list of stampotique stamps.......
