Stampotique SDC209: Repeat Yourself

Repeat Yourself!

I am/was actually away on holiday in sunny Devon or being England rainy Devon,
it's not all bad though as we are/were staying in a fantastic farmhouse complete with a private swimming pool proper size that is, with a gymn and games room.
Here is a picture.

I'm having fun joining in with the Stampotique challenge and can't wait for the the following weeks subject to be posted to get stuck in.

 If you would like to participate or just have a look at some great projects hop on over to the  Stampotique Design Challenge blog.

As I was on holiday when the new Challenge was set I had to be content with just thinking about what I wanted  to do and keep my fingers crossed it would work out when I home.
This is my process.
I began with a 6x6 hammered card blank, onto this I used a stencil to add an explosion of the lovely new distress Twisted Citron green, then added a small amount of the lovely bright Mermaid Lagoon blue through stencil waste to add a sort of grounding and stamped an indigoblu stamp to add more grounding.

The circle was created by an old plastic plant pot which I use as a stamp initially sort of circling it at the same time then drawing around it and adding scribbles.
A Kate Crane stamp was stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with watercolour pencils, finished off with a paintbrush to create the desired effect. (Done while on holiday as the stamp arrived minutes before we left,  so I grabbed a few essentials and took it with me, my inspiration if you like).
When you return from your holiday you often have a load of mail to go through normally bills. After opening the above I decided to use the envelopes to create my repeate stamping, I managed to get ten from one envelope.

The tips of the head and toes were coloured with a touch of pink, arranged and stuck down with the watercolored stamped  image in the centre.
A Dymo "Hi"was repeated several times then added around the main image.
Here is the finished card.

My girls didn't get it, which worried me but hey sometimes you just have to go with it.
