We Love 2 Create –Believe in Magic!

Hello! Happy Sunday!

Time for a new monthly challenge at WE LOVE 2 CREATE which is always ‘Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes’ and we are sponsored by the awesome POLKADOODLES!! Our winner will receive a fabulous prize so check out the blog for details.

Now ever since I was little (yes, I can remember that far back; just) I have loved shadow puppets (!). My parents even bought me a shadow theatre complete with odd looking characters and I played with it constantly...well until it sort of disintegrated.  And I think that is where my love for silhouettes comes from.  So how could I possibly resist these GORGEOUS new Polkadoodles stamps that were premiered on Hochanda recently?

The beauty of a silhouette stamp is that it cries out for an interesting background.  So step up please all those mop-up, stencil cleaning & general experimenting bits of paper that have accumulated in my ‘oooh-must-do-something-with-that’ drawer.

I used quite a textured watercolour paper so stamping the silhouettes was never going to be easy.  Thank goodness for a stamping platform, how did I manage without one? 

Polkadoodles Goodies:

Other Stuff:
Background: Distress Oxide ‘mop-up’ on textured watercolour paper
Ink: Versafine – Candid Apple, Carved Pumpkin & Walnut Stain Distress Oxides
The Rest: Posca Pens – Chipboard Corners

Thanks so much for looking and taking the time to comment; I really do appreciate it! Enjoy what’s left of the weekend!

See ya!
