Layering is the Key!

Hi Everyone

This week at Stampotique is Lots of Layers.

I firstly took red and green acrylic paint and painted a Tim Holtz tag.

I have a small stash of peel offs - yes that's right peel offs - not a common word these days!  I had already used 2 of the 'half circle' decorative doilies so the full one went on the bottom of the tag.  The other two I got the 'waste' and put onto low tack sellotape and transferred the 'bits' onto the tag at the top making a layered pattern.

I then stamped out Stitch and layered her in clothes from Toby and Oliver. Oliver's jumper was stamped out onto WOW embossed paper.  All the items were coloured in with Promarkers.

Th quote is from CoCo Chanel:
I dont do fashion. I am fashion.

Have a lovely week - Sue
