Sentimental at Stampotique

Over at Stampotique Designers Challenge this week the theme is
"Sentiments and Sayings"
We are challenged by Gez to make something that says it with words.
the Stampotique character I have used is, the previously uninked, "Bob takes time out"
I have stamped him onto gesso'd dictionary paper and coloured him with Spectrum Noir pencils and the addition of purple paint.The paint brush in his hand has been added from another stamp I have.
The background was a piece of watercolour paper that I had used to blot up previous remnants of ink on my craft mat, I just added some stamping in both ink and paint using Darkroom Door stamps.
Here you can see Bob with his brush taking note of the sentiment on the card.
Sentiment is "Kids Quotes" from Inkadinkado
Thanks for stopping by
