'Bottles in a Row"

"Bottles in a Row'

I've seen so many beautiful cards around blogland that use bottle stamps lately,
but I didn't own any.  
Then Shirley, from FSC, showed me some gorgeous bottle stamps by Inkadinkadoo via Skype...
(which was so handy because I got to see their actual size)

I saw what Shirley made with the same stamp and it looks absolutely nothing like mine!  I think I need to practice embracing 'pretty' some more... 

This card uses a lot of my favourite techniques...and some new ones. like
 bleach blocking,
a little dylusions dripping (I think I am getting addicted to this),
stamping on text
and a little doodling.

It is just a muck around card that was heaps of fun to make 
and I love it just the same.

I'm with Astrid Dot please don't change your style as what you do is amazing and completely different to what's out there. Just bring on the usual "Dot Style". x x Different is what we need.

Love this make and how you show what you can do with just one little ole stamp. x x

Keep them coming sweets.

Warm crafty hugs from Shirl x x x

To echo comments above Dot you definitely don't need to change your style. This is another gem and I love the inky drips and doodling. Jenny x
