Stampotique Designer's Challenge 101 ~ Text

Stampotique Originals have got a brand NEW challenge for you today!

Our lovely & very talented hostess Sarinda has set the latest challenge.. here is what she has to say...

Sarinda here and I am hosting. I love using text in my work it is a fun way to get texture without a whole lot of work. With that I have a background tutorial for you to try. Click over to my blog Aggregate Memories. Wishing you a very creative and inspiring day.

Great challenge Sarinda! My daughter is home for a couple of days recouperating and we are into watching The Hobbit movie.. with that in mind I've made my own front door!! Hope you like it...

 Stamps used: My small Heart & Daisy, Daisy

My door started life as a plain white chipboard Gothic Arch from Tando Creative, you can find a list of stockists HERE.

It's covered in gorgeous paper which was a digi freebie from the gorgeous Mandy and over stamped with Jo Capper-Sandon's gorgeous Daisy stamp.

The little arch is also from Tando and covered with a gorgeous piece of French text.. the door handle is a little press stud.

I really love my little door and might just have to add it to the front of a journal!

Thank you for calling and leaving a comment if you get the chance.. please pop on over to the Challenge blog to see lots of gorgeous inspiration from the rest of the Design Team. Hope you can join us, we would be delighted to call..

  Happy creating, Gez oxox
