Stampotique Challenge- One Layer

Frank knew he would find someone special in the crowd!
I started by stamping Stampotique smile, then covering him with masking fluid
Once dry I coated the background with a mixture of DecoArt Silver sage, Glorious Gold & Rich Expresso metallics
Once dry I stamped the Stampotique heads with Stazon Timber Brown and the hearts in Royal Purple & Black. The hearts were then coloured with pro markers. They didn't cover too well but I liked the texture effect
Then I rubbed off the masking fluid and applied subtle shading with distress inks, Pumice Stone & Milled Lavender 


  1. Fabulous Jools, I love the metallic feel to it. Thanks for joining us again at Stampotique this week.

  2. This is a joy, Jools - just love the "not very coloured" hearts! Great masking and layered stamping - I love it. Thank you so much for all your lovely comments too!

  5. Ha, how very clever to use masking fluid, - I never thought of that, I always mask off with sticky papers. Great effects on the background, love the hearts and as to Frank? Well, he's a fellow right after my heart! Another great make Jools, love it!
