Stampotique Designers Challenge ~ Family theme

We are family! Goodness, I'm going to be singing that all day now.. hehe! It's time for a brand new challenge over at the Stampotique Designers  challenge blog.

Kate is our hostess this week and here is what she says about her challenge this week:

For quite some time now, I have been thinking that some of the Stampotique characters remind me of a family gathering ...( er, no offence to any of my family members who may happen to be reading LOL!) So, with that in mind I set you a challenge to create something, anything, with the theme of family. It could be a greeting card, a journal page, an ATC .... whatever you like. Now, we've all got families but it means something different to each and every one of us, so you can be serious .... such as 'If sisters were flowers I'd pick you', or tongue in cheek... 'You pick your friends, not your family', or anything else that takes your fancy! 

Ready to play for your chance to win a $30 gift certificate for Stampotique stamps?

Here is a journal page I've made for Kate's challenge..

 I made a nice inky background then stamped my image onto white cardstock and coloured with Copic pens. The words are computer generated.. and very special to me. The Queen of Life is mounted onto 3D foam pads and stands slightly away from my page.

Hope you can join in our latest challenge, the Design Team have been busy creating to inspire, see HERE.

Thank you for calling and leaving a comment if you get the chance, 

happy creating, Gez.
