Stampotique Designers Challenge - Backgrounds


It's my turn to set the theme this week for the Stampotique Designer's Challenge. I love to use my rubber stamps for my backgrounds, so this week you are challenged to use your stamps for your backgrounds aswell as your main focal image.

What I love about using your stamps in this way is that you can get a truly original background as even you will never be able to get the same one again.

I had this little set of Russian doll blanks just sitting in my draw and I decided to use these, I created my background using, paints, inks and embossing powders, using the rubber stamps. Text Block #3, Honeycomb Background (embossed dots) and Daniel's hearts.


For my focal images I used two stamps from the new releases,  Line up and Flying Heart, chopping up the stamped elements as  needed.

You can now use any stamps for the Challenges, but only one entry per person for each challenge. Two lucky people will be drawn from all the challenges for October who will win a $30 voucher to spend on Stampotique rubber. So make sure you go over to the Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog to enter.

Stampotique Rubber Stamps are available to buy from Stampotique originals, and in the UK you can buy them from Happy Daze.


Thank you for Visiting, Carol x
