SDC 38 - Black White and a hint of colour

Finally some time to do a bit of crafting even if it is not in a nice neat organised room. With all the running, working and yest still unpacking lately it has been very hard to find some crafting time but I did manage to spare a bit of time today and complete this card for the Stampotique Designers Challenge #38. This challenge was to use Black, White and a bit of color. I recently got my order of stamps from Stampotique so I could not wait to use them. This was one I had purchased. Isn't it fab. I have to say also that they are one of the nicest companies I have bought from. Very attentive and on top of any issues.
So for my card I used my Stampotique beach girls stamp by Janet Klein inked in black archival and stamped onto white card. I then inked the edges, added Rock candy Distress Crackle paint and inked over with black soot trying to make it look like an old photo. The background is Mustard Seed Distress ink through a Crafters companion template then brushed with bits of white paint here and there. I used the yellow dot because the stamp remins me of the song itsy bitsy...... The cow is from my stash and the shells are also from my stash. I am entering this into the SDC38 challenge.
the weather has finally turned cooler here so hopefully it will be a bit easier to get more stuff on the house done and in turn have a little more crafting time. We shall see. One can dream right?
Thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful day. Angela

It worked-this has a real 50's feel to it with the polkadots and spots and ribbon. Love it. Thanks for joining in with the Stampotique Challenge .
