Stampotique Designer's Challenge #135 Perfect Pairs

It's time for a brand new challenge today over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog and today sees Kathi Rehrek as our hostess this week. Here is what she has to say..

It's almost Valentine's Day. Valentine's Day makes me think of couples, so my challenge is called Perfect Pairs.

Use two (2) of an item so that things are in pairs. This can be two stamped images, two embellishments, two layers of patterned paper, two colors, etc.

See how many pairs you can use in your project. Just be sure to use at least one perfect pair and have fun!

Here is my journal page for this weeks challenge..


       Stamps used: FLying Bird, Peace on your wings and Stars (from the Design Cube)

I created the background using Dyslusion spray inks and a piece of sequin waste. I then stamped Roc's birds onto tissue paper, reversing one of the images before gluing to my page. They were both coloured using watercolour pencils.

The sentiment 'Peace on your wings' was stamped onto cream paper and glued onto the page.. doodles were added using a black pen and stars stamped into acrylic paint and grey ink.

I just love this page!

Thank you for calling. Please pop on over to the challenge blog to see lots more inspiration from the Design Team and join in the fun if you get the chance! See the blog for full rules and details of how to play along and you will be entered into the random draw at the end of the month where two lucky players will each win for themselves a $30 gift certificate... what are you waiting for!! Also, this week we have two guest designers to delight you with their gorgeous artwork.

  Happy creating, Gez

So lovely - the little stars are wonderful, and the sentiment is just great. The doodled line around the edge is the perfect finishing touch.
