SDC64: Combining Stamps

Over on the Stampotique Designers Challenge this week, is to make something that combines 2 stamps. Of course I love this idea & the challenge immediately became well what about 3...on this back to school art journal layout. Every now & then I like to add photos (printed on paper) to my journals,back to school is the perfect time for this. This page started out with dylusions spray, random stenciling & the circle was done with texture paste. Once the paste was dry I added more spray but with a paint brush so I could control it, keeping the purple in the circle. I stamped the border with Stampotique's ribbon boarder#2 in archival ink and using my dylusions (in waterpens) colored it in. The reason I love using dylusions this way is the color is so vibrant & it builds on top of itself so the color really shows up. All you  have to do is take an empty water pen & after shaking the dylusions a bit fill the pen 3/4 of the way full-that's it done. I leave them at my desk with all the colors so I have quick access- very addicting! I added my title-stamped on paper & cut out with those old scissors we all have that we bought 10 years ago with funky edges. 
Next it was time to layer my stamps. Kitty & Mr. Stripes are from Stampotique and they are standing on the border, followed by stamp #3-an owl for kitty and a hat for spidey. I am very tempted to give owl a hat & make it 4 stamps! Head over to the Stampotique designers challenge site & see what they have cooked up over there!
