Introducing.......Mr Boombastic

Here he is - Mr Boombastic! I love this stamp by Stampotique and I have used him on a lot of different things. This ATC is a bit of a cheat because it's an updated version of one I did a while ago but I wanted to enter an ATC swap with a men/boys theme and this seemed to fit the bill (in my usual weirdy way!). I used versamagic chalk for the background with a bit of old text and a PaperArtsy stamp. A few dots from a splatter stamp and a few scrapings with an old credit card before I added Mr Boombastic himself. My usual messy stitching round the edge and a couple of extras - the crown and the heart and TA-DA! Finished.
I added the text 'Mr Boombastic' after printing it out on my computer. The words come from an old song from the late 80s I think, by a reggae artist called Shaggy. It went something like this...... 'She call me Mr Boombastic, tell me fantastic, call me Mr Ro.......ro.......romantic' LOL!
Thanks to you all for leaving such lovely comments on my blog give-away. I'll be asking my son to pick a winner on Friday so it's not too late to play.
Bye for now.


  1. I think my Boombastic is gorgeous and love the big heart ... very 'romantic'. I also love the splatter stamp, can you tell me where you got it from.

  2. You have been listening to Shaggy !! I love this little guy and each and every card you do with the Stampotique line. Soooo creative.
    Great effect with the Versamagic . . . will have to try that.


Thanks so much for leaving a comment!
