SDC284 - Anything goes

SDC 284 - Stampotique Watercolor pocket book

It's wednesday and that means for the Stampotique Designer's Challenge is live with the second week of the Anything Goes challenge. I've recently bought a moleskine Watercolor pocket book and decided to make a little water coloring book out of it. I have stamped several rubber stamp images in it and this is the first page. I quite like how it turned out!

The quality of the pocket book is great I must say! Minimal warping and buckling, doesn't bleed through and a great pocket size! I have used watercolors from different manufacturers to create this pallet. I esp. enjoy using the shimmery colors from Cloves and Honey.  
By the way I embossed the #stampotique so that acted as a resist. The rest was stamped with Memento dew drop inks, and they are water proof. Everything was colored with the pentel waterbrush. This page was really great to practice my shading and have an image pop out to the front.

Here you can see the amazing shimmery goodness as I turned on the over head light to take this picture. Hope you like the idea of making your own pocket water coloring book :)

Art Journal: Soular Eclipse

Eclipse art journal page

Today  am sharing an art journal page I had started during the Solar Eclipse in August and recently finished. This was a page that I had added random papers and imagery to that resulted into this finished journal page.

Eclipse art journal page
Gelli printed papers combined to the background collage. Ecoline and Neocolor Crayons to pop some color off it, Moon stamp from VLVS!, text stamp from Stampotique, face stamp from Carabelle and written text with Wink of Luna pen and white gel pen.

Sharing this desk shot at my friends at WOYWW this week - glad to finally have the time to share again with Julia and the rest :)

And of course the complete journal page must be shown in full glory.

Mail Art Monday: Soulmate

Your heart speaks

Hey all, it's time to start up my Mail Art Monday segment again after a little break for the summer. Today I am sharing a note card I made with Stampotique stamps. The background is a piece of origami paper I have rolled on some paint over, the lightly scraped modeling paste over a tile stencil and rolled over some more paints in grey and black tones. The dry brushed the piece to get the stencil pattern showing through for texture. Stamped the handwritten script with a white ink ink pad, Black embossed soulmate, spatters with a posca pen and adhered all the other pieces to the card. The angel is colored with wink of stella and water brush. She got a lot of sparkle to her.

Your heart speaks
Before I matted this onto the card stock, I added more gold and bronze spatters and a border with distress crayons. I love how she pops due the the black background and the subtle texture that shows through behind her. A special card you could send to your loved one. 

The following stamps were used:

Itsy Bitsy Spider (Stampotique new release October)

Oktober releases

It's the beginning of a new month and that means new releases from Stampotique Originals are available! 

This pocket art journal page has a distress Oxide base. I still love making colorful backgrounds with those inks! It's another one layer page in which I have used this fun Spider stamp and as it has a smaller one on the side, I made Linda hold that one from her hand. The larger one is stamped on the background for some fun effect. The coloring is done with alcohol and faber castell pitt markers and the lettering with a Tombow Fudenosuke brush pen (with white gel pen accents) 

It's the second week of our Anything but a card Challenge and you are invited to play along. You can link your project on the blog HERE or on our FB group album HERE
