Desert Scene Shadow Box

 Happy autumn! Regardless of the season, my heart is always in the Arizona heat :) So today I'm sharing a desert themed shadow box created for the newest Stampotique Challenge - NATURE.



I used my favorite desert-y Stampotique stamps, which includes "Road Runner", "Cactus Row", and "Home Sweet Home". I colored the images with Scribble Sticks and Neocolor II Crayons. 


I also have a process video so you can watch how it all came together. Click here to watch!




Thank you so much for joining me.

Be YOU - Mixed Media Card and Video

 I'm excited to share a card today that's a bit outside of my usual card-making comfort zone. Today I created a very mixed media inspired card. I took my usual techniques that I incorporate into an art journal page but translated it onto a slimline card (also a new shape for me!).

The challenge for the next two weeks the Stampotique Originals Facebook Page is GIRLS! So pull out your funky girl stamps and create anything you want. Enter your project to the challenge album on facebook and you have a chance to win a $30 gift card to the Stampotique store!

For my card I used the very cool "Algae" girl stamp and colored her with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. I paired her with a great "be you" chipboard shape from Dina Wakley. She definitely looks like a girl who doesn't care what others think!

For details on how I created the background, please watch the process video here! Enjoy!
