Minkygirl by Daniel Torrente
Ooh, it's my turn to host the Stampotique Designers challenge and I'm delighted about that! Here's my challenge:
I am always looking for ways to make art which is useful, something I can use in every day life so what better than a bookmark? You can never have enough of these ... I like to use them to mark pages in all of my favourite art publications! You can make any type of bookmark: A traditional straight bookmark, a corner bookmark, a swinging tag ... In any style: Vintage, funky, cute or weird. Anything goes! So go and dig out all for your favourite Stampotique stamps, it's time to get creative!
As it's the second challenge of the month it's Stampotique stamps only please, and as always there is a chance to win a $30 gift certificate for one lucky winner (and who wouldn't want that?!) Hop over to the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog here to post your creation. I look forward to seeing you there!
I chose to turn Minky Girl into a bookworm by drawing some reading specs onto her face (well, I need them, why shouldn't she?!) I made a background using distress inks and as this was a challenge linked to reading, I thought it only right to include some text so I used Jo's French text, along with a couple of long splatters. I then stitched the whole thing inside a pocket of heavy-weight acetate to protect it.
And here it is, nestling inside a book:
I do hope you will join us on this challenge! Bye for now........
