Colour Challenge for Stampotique


This week on the Stampotique designers challenge is to use the colours Mustard, Navy and Orange. The challenge has been set by Jane.

I was digging around in my big box of "stuff" and I can across this little wooden house cut out and I thought it would make a cool Halloween decoration.

After I had given it a crackle finish I stamped the Stringed lights image around the roof edge and gave them orange lights.

Poor Mervyn is not too happy as his Mum made him wear his sisters costume from last year. I added the wings from Butterfly to him and Stella's Hat, to give him his costume.

I finished it with one of the smaller pumpkins from the Halloween cube 2. The Old English Halloween has been stamped onto a Tim Holtz Fragment that I drilled and hung from the bottom of the house by jump rings.

Do please go over to the Stampotique Designers blog to enter the challenge this week. Each month two of the entries from the entire month will be randomly drawn to receive a $30 gift certificate to spend on lovely Stampotique Rubber.

The full range of Stampotique Rubber Stamps can be seen on their website HERE and in the UK you can purchase them from Happy Daze.
