GDT for Stampotique

Hi Everyone

 I am delighted, "woop woop" to have been asked to be the Stampotique Designers Blog 
guest designer for March which means I get to be part of their talented team for a few weeks. I have been a huge fan of Stampotique stamps for many years now and have collected over 200 of their stamps. This last 12 months, due to increased work pressure, I haven't had the chance to play with them nearly as much as I would have wished so I jumped at the chance for a full month of Stampotique fun.
The first challenge theme for March is 

Use Ribbon or Lace (or both)

I start with an MDF panel that I have covered with fabric which I have given a rust treatment. My starring character is one of my favourite Stampotique stamps 'Dwindled' which I have stamped onto fabric and coloured with diluted paints. I have built up my background using several lace trims and ribbons and a lot of machine sewing to add to the texture. The word "fragile', which is from the 'Barcode Text' stamp, has also been stamped onto fabric, machine stitched around and cut out. There are tiny beads and paint splatters to add even more texture.
I hope you like it and I will see you same time next week with a totally different take on this theme.
Thanks for popping in

  1. So lovely to have you with us Amanda especially when you make such beautiful stuff!!!! Gay xx

  2. Wowzer! That is a stunning piece to kick off your month guest designing for Stampotique (woop, woop, indeed!). Such glorious shabby lacy textures, given that fabulously grungy twist with all the loose fibres and rusty background. I'm completely in love with this. Huge congrats on your GD post - I'm so glad it's forcing you to the craft table despite your busy schedules... we'll get the benefits with work like this!

  4. I'm stunned, not only by your out of this world creation but the fact you have over 200 Stampotique stamps.....I'm still letting that sink may take some time....
    Congrats on your GDT spot though ;)
    No.1 speechless fan hugs
