going grey challenge and stampotique new stamp releases





The challenge at Going Grey this week is sponsored by stampotique with a theme "anything goes". What could be easier?
When I made this card, it was an experiment in shadows. I found that by adding shadows under all of the letters of the large word, it fixed them in place making it look like they are all at different distances. I love that effect and it's so so easy!

talking of stampotique, the brand new stamps are released today and there really is something for everyone, from several different designers.

Watch my blog over the next few days to see some of the new stamps....

One of my favourites has to be the moon stamp designed by Jo Capper-Sandon. this comes large and small, this is what it looks like in large. I simply stamped onto light blue card, coloured the moon and star with white pencil and then lightly inked with stormy sky distress in. The quote is computer generated and the silver bits are metallic flower soft.
