New Stampotique Challenge~

Hello Girls~

Hope you are all well, and if you live in the UK, hope you are enjoying this gorgeous, if not a bit "freaky" warm to hot weather. I keep thinking it's got to rain sooner or later or we are in big trouble in the drought department!!

Oh how fun life is: Not only will we be walking everywhere (petrol tanker strike!!) but we will be doing it in torrential rain!!! LOL

Ever the optimist, that's me....I did not rush out and top up my car with gold...I mean petrol, I just thought what the heck, we are all going to end up with none in the end anyway. I have had my new car a month on Sunday and have only done 168 miles so far. My sister can do that many miles in a week!!!
I could literally do without a car if I had to....Well slight exaggeration but you know what I mean.

Onto today's project.
I have a new found love and it's called Art journaling, I just love it, it is so calming and therapeutic. If I have a bit of a Mojo failure, I just turn to the journal and off I go. It is so random and unplanned that it makes it such fun to do.
This photo shows you what I did tonight after tea.






I used Dylusions spray inks, masks, inks, gesso primer, Stampotique stamps, Dylusions stamps, and anything else I have to hand to make the backgrounds pop.

I was not too sure when I first saw these Stampotique Stamps, thought they were a bit odd and ugly, however they have really grown on me, and with the market at the moment being ALL cute and Girly, it makes a pleasant change!
They are just perect for this kind of crafting and go with the bright colours so well.
The big Mushrooms are called "Shrooms" and the funny little man is called "Daniel Torrente". My "Spring" sentiment is called Spring Magic and is by Penny Black.

Stampotique--Spring has Sprung

My Mum's Craft Shop--Stamp it

One Stitch at a Time--Anything Goes

Raise the Bar--In the Garden
