A Rococo Moment for Stampotique

Hi Everyone
Another Stampotique Designers Challenge  is calling me and the challenge this week has been set by DT member Sam. This is what Sam says regarding her challenge theme
"One of the beauties of Stampotique stamps is even though there are 18 amazing artists designing our rubbery goodness and their images work so well together it's great to use a lot of stamps for one project, I often do.

So this week, I am challenging myself too and inviting you to use just one stamp . . . wondering off scratching head and rubbing chin . . . this is going to be SO hard to choose!!
Well Sam was sooooo right, it was so hard to choose just one stamp, but I did, and I chose
"Rear View Mirror" stamped using black versafine onto stamping card and cut out.
I made my backround using a large stencil as a stamp by adding mini distress pads and a spray of water. I have had this Tim Holtz ornate frame die cut from book page coloured card lying around for ages so have eventually put it to use. Coloured with aged mahogany distress ink and gold gilding wax (the latter which hasn't been picked up on the photo)
the quote is PC generated and finally a length of gold lace ribbon. I have edged it allwith a gold leaf pen and matted onto black card.
thanks for stopping by I really appreciate your visit.
See you soon
