Stampotique Designers Challenge #77 ~ Sentimental

It's time for a brand NEW challenge this week over on the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog and I am delighted and over the moon to be your hostess this week.. my challenge to you is to get sentimental!  

I love to add sentiments to my artwork whether I am cardmaking or art journaling. To me a simple sentiment can say it all.. Stampotique Originals have a lovely selection of sentiments to suit all occasions and tastes and as you would expect from Stampotique some out of the norm sentiments too!

So, it's time to get creative and share your favourite sentiments with us.

 Have fun!

I decided to alter an envelope for this challenge and had great fun getting inky with Dylusions!

I used some beautiful stamps from Stampotique Originals stamping them with Archival ink.

Stamps used: French Text, Daisy, Daisy, LOVE travels.... Two Sticks, Altered 4U

The nice thing about altering envelopes is you get to decorate both sides :o))

I just had to share something funny I noticed while I was crafting, I sprayed some Dylusions spray onto my craft mat and on a closer look noitced something that made me smile..

 .. here's a close - up..!!
