Stampotique Challenge-Polka Dots

A fabulous new Stampotique challenge to use Polka Dots, always so pretty, striking and versatile

Here's my polka people! I learned this technique to make a wire frame and stand when I took a class with France Papillon recently and thought it would be a really cool way to make a multi photo frame

I stamped my Stampotique family onto 2" circles and coloured with watercolour mounted onto lengths of thick wire with some tape and the same with the wire frames

Stencilled silver metallic onto black card for the background

Stampotique Stamps used from left to right
Skiddy, Arnold, Marsha, Buru, Smile, Kamona, Dwindled, Wilbur, Checkers,  Bowtie, Eric and Winter

Looking forward to seeing you Polka Projects

Stampotique Text Background

At the weekend I was attending classes at Art from the Heart in Harrogate with the amazing France Papillon and look who I aquired isn't she beautiful
I couldn't wait to use her and some of the new Distress sprays I picked up, the colours were inspired by a wonderful orchid that had unfortunatly finished flowering, I've use some to embellish as they are beautiful too
I used lots of different text and lace to build to the background, stamped Stampotique Femme Collage and distressed and coloured with the sprays
