stampotique challenge time

It's stampotique challenge time once again. sam has asked to create an atc.  i used my brand new stamp stacked love for the focal image, but to create the background i used design cubein stitches,  and the sentiment from the stamp tall word collage.

to create the background i used  ranger tissue scrap and then used gesso and ranger distress paint to paint over it, except for the bird.  i used stampotique stamps in soft brown to add another layer of interest.  i embossed my love stamp in black and used markers to color it in.  i stamped creative on a scrap piece of paper.  i added fringe to the bottom of the atc and secured it on the background with machine stitching.

if you would like to join in on the fun you can find all about the details by clicking the above link.  If you play you will have a chance to win a $30.00 gift certificate towards Stampotique stamps, and really, who couldn't use more stamps?!


  1. ooo it's a lovely ATC Roc, I love how your stamps work with anything and everything!!

  2. Love this ATC, your color is amazing and I just think it's awesome!

  3. Love all that layering, Roc! It takes time, but the end result is generally worth it--as it is here! Totally love your bird!!

  4. the trim on the bottom is just the perfect addition.
