Stampotique Challenge 354 - Circles

The newest Stampotique designer's challenge is CIRCLES. Create a project using circles or in the shape of a circle. Participate in challenge #SDC354 over at their facebook page!

I created this circle themed underwater tag using Stampotique Mini Sealife Cube stamps. I used a variety of stencils with circles to create the background. Then I traced three large circles and painted over the rest of the background. 

The stamps were colored in with NeoColor II crayons and fussy cut to place in the large circle windows. 

That creepy octopus is my favorite! I also created a process video that you can watch here. Enjoy!

Stampotique Challenge - Use a Stencil + Video

Welcome back to another Stampotique Originals challenge. This time the challenge is... Use a stencil! I actually used just one stencil in a few different ways, but of course you can use as many as you'd like. If you don't own a stencil... make your own! 

Here is the ATC I created using the adorable new Beertie stamp...

I used this adorable new stamp called Beertie (#5866), isn't he the cutest?! I colored him with Neocolor II Crayons and Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks. The background uses a stencil from The Crafter's Workshop called Hexagons. First I inked through the medium hexagons, then I heat embossed in gold the smallest hexagons, and then I cut one large hexagon to mount the bee.

I also put together a video of my process. You can watch it here! Enjoy!
