Smile......

I love the Stampotique stamps and don't do nearly enough with them. I've had this little chap for a while. Really, I've been spurred on by Jo's recent creations with backgrounds and fab makes with these stamps. This background was made with a mixture of Glimmer Mists and Crafty Notions sprays. It is an acetate card but slightly difficult to see. Yay - I've finally made something with no frills and lace!

Edit: Thanks to Julie for pointing out it's the right colours for the third Play Date Cafe challenge!.

I love Glimmer Mists and Crafty Notions sprays and don't make enough use of them. Your card is very professional looking - each element compliments the others.

I just love this card. I have the same stamp and a lot more of the stampotique ones and I don't use them enough. I am also into Crafty notions and Glimmer mists at the moment, have you tried them on material-wonderful.

I just love your take on this although your little chap is a tad scary like most Stampotique images.
The background is fab too and weirdly enough, I'm teaching a class next week on using just those sprays. Have several excited ladies who all have them but don't know what to do with them!
