SDC 278 Use Some Kind of Tape

It's week 2 of our Designers Challenge over at Stampotique and we are challenging you to use some kind of tape.

I made a tag with one of Daniel Torrente's new designs, Floating (6224).


I also used the Hashtag Stamps by Arwen McCullen (7435).  Distress Ink for the background and I used some punchinella for the little stars.  Washi Tape is the tape I selected to use as a little platform for this floating cutie!

There is still time to link up to the challenge on the blog or share on our facebook page, Stampotique Originals Rubberstamps.

SDC277 Celebration

This week over on the Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog it is all about CELEBRATIONS!

I created a card to welcome new little ones with the NEW Mini Sealife Cube by Daniel Torrente (6232).  This is a super fun one!!! And Reggie also by Daniel Torrente (6188).



Scrumptious right!!!  AND such bright colors to welcome that little one!!


The background is done with Distress Crayons. I used colored pencils to color the seahorses.  The fabulous seaweed is a chip piece by UmWow Studio painted with Distress Paint.


Of course sequins make perfect water bubbles!!!

I hope you are inspired and linke up to the challenge OR share your masterpiece on our Facebook page, Stampotique Origianls Rubberstamps.
