Stampotique again


I have loved playing with my new Stampotique stamp and had to ink her up again. I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday and themes from Stampin' for the weekend - new and blue, Basic Grey - dots and spots, Creative Inspiration - Use something New,  Craft Your Days Away - Anything Goes, and Paper Cutz - metal.

The result.

Image stamped on TH paper edged with sparlky embossing powder and over inked. Dark blue papers were run through embossing folder and the bottom one had blue foil added to some of the spots. The sentiment is a digi from Scrap n Fonts.

Prom Queen stamp (Stampotique)
TH paper Vintage/Shabby Chic set
Basic Grey background paper
Miscellaneous embellishments from my stash

Tuesday Throwdown - Embossing
Creative Cottage - Something New
Stampin' B's - Old and New (New stamp for Christmas, papers and embellishments old)
Stamp Insanity - Metal

Thanks for looking and have a great week ahead.

So sweet! Very trendy for a teen card. The sentiment reminds me of something my Mum used to say when I was growing up. Telling us to mind our manners at the dinner table, because what if the Queen were to visit! I used this with my girls, and also my granddaughters. Not sure that it works, but it makes them stop and think! LOL
