Stamped With Love

 Hi!  Time for another Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge!  It is all about my favorite things.... Stamps!  Here is the challenge description: 

"Look through your collection of Tim Holtz stamps - old and new - and choose one of your favorites to create whatever you imagine with it. Your entry could be a card, a vignette, a layout, or something even more amazing!"

I decided to use the new Botanic Collage and make 3 ATC's from them: 

I felt very retro with coloring my stamps with distress marker and giving them a light spritz and then stamping them.  I had fun playing with the various colors.  I also inked up a portion of the stamp with a dye ink pad.
There is something about ATC's and creating in a small format.  Less to design and just highlight the stamps!

The new botanics are dreamy and I loved the text behind them.  I inked up the stamp with dye ink and then wiped off the ink for the flower petals and colored them back in with markers. 

I also played with a little handheld sewing machine.  I stitched the body of the butterfly to attach it. It didn't show up because the thread was white so I added pearls over it.  But it was fun and something I can't wait to try again! 

Please come join us and share your favorite TH stamps!  The overall winner will be offered the chance to be a Guest Designer at a future date  at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the drawing for the chance to win a $25.00 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. There are also Top 3 Badges for three additional outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team.

Thanks for stopping by!
