New beginnings, new stamp and COCC #26

Hello everyone and welcome

I have been itching to play with this new stamp that my husband bought me for Christmas. I had been looking at the Stampotique stamps all last year and wasn't sure how I would use them, yet they intrigued me and at last I have plucked up courage to experiment with them. I am pleased with the simplicity of this and the effect I have achieved. I had several challenges in mind,

Studio L3 - Rusted Grunge
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Your newest stamp
Unscripted Sketches -  old sketch #13     



Prom Queen by Jill Penney and Daniel Torrente has been stamped onto patterned paper and coloured using promarkers. Diecut and stamped pieces have been given the rusted grunge technique (see P45 of TH Compendium of Curiosities for how to do it) and stickles added to edges and crown. The sentiment is my own created in Word.

I've seen this card somewhere before..... but where? It was definitely your card, man I hate when that happens! Stamp Man blog hop , perhaps I perused your site. Perhaps I;m losing my mind! lol Regardless this is definitely a unique piece of art! Placing her on DP was ingenious! The accents are perfect. Thanks for showing us your NEW stuffs at Creative Inspirations this time round. Happy Crafting!
