Just Like Buses They Come In Threes

Good morning and happy weekend. Today it's all about the threes! I'm entering a trio of challenges, with my trio of tags.
PaperArtsy have challenged us to use sprays, Stamps and Stencils want to see three of a kind, and The Mirror Crack'd have gone with a triptych theme.

I started by making my own spray paint with these Fresco Paints.
It gave a mixture of a fine mist and some heavy drips which I really like.
These are the backgrounds stamped with Darcy's stamps and coloured with Prisma pencils.
The stars have been stencilled with silver embossing paste.
Brian was then stamped and coloured.
Then Pretty Flamingo...
And finally Action Kitty. I really must stop giving my stamps names (or maybe not)
So here's my sprayed, 3 of a kind, triptych - I wish I could get a better photograph but we've not had sun for days.
Edit, just scanned it - much better colours now :-)

Sorry to be short and sweet but so much to do and so little time!

Hope you like it, and thanks very much for looking x


  1. Brilliant again Sue,love the funky stamps and the even funkier names you've given them! I usually call any grey rubber stamps I have by sweary names when they bead up......
