Just Be You!

It's France's turn to choose the theme today at Stampotique, and this is what she has to say.

‘Don’t you just love all the details on Stampotique stamps? The best way to realize just how detailed they are is… by trimming them! And that’s our challenge this week: I’d like you to use (at least) 3 trimmed stamped images!
Up to you to use 3 times the same image or 3 different ones, to use them on a tag, a card, an altered object,…  I hope you find this as relaxing as I do!
 Ps: sometimes you need to cheat a bit to get all the details. You can for instance cut off some details when trimming and make them visible again by stamping directly on your piece and sticking the trimmed image on top of the stamped image.’
 I wanted to let my stamps do the talking so the background is  just torn book pages on mountboard that's been painted over with watered down white acrylic paint.
I've stamped Crowline,  Village and Just Be U in black, then stamped, coloured and cut out the bird from Just Be U, Home Sweet Home and Banner.
For once what I had in my head has managed to come out - it's not very often that happens :-).
I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge, which is colour.
I hope you'll join in with our challenge, and thanks very much for looking x
