Stampotique challenge time!

It's STAMPOTIQUE DESIGNERS challenge time again.
Unlike the last challenge.....to use old book pages.....which I found really easy to do, this time really was a challenge! This time you are challenged to work to a sketch............I know these are really popular but I find them really HARD! I think it's to do with being told what to do, having to stick to a brief, neither of which I am very good at!! 

This is the sketch........

 ......and this is what I ended up with......

 I used an old book cover......a streak of paint for the background block, the book spine for the bar across and the bird as the main image.........I decided to go for the optional sentiment!


 I liked the fact the book cover had some numbers written on it so I deliberately left them in place!

So, head over to the challenge site and join in the fun.......remember......its Stampotiue stamps only this time!

I love it Sue! Your story about struggling with this one made me smile a little but you came out of the struggle with a wonderful entry!

It is brilliant Sue. The kind of imagery I wish I could more readily adopt...away from the flowers etc.
You holiday probably had a big influence.

What a GREAT interpretation of a sketch challenge! LOVE it, especially the way you used the book cover and binding! You will probably never see one on The Altered Alice as I find them VERY STRESSFUL! I think this is one area where we are in complete agreement, my friend! :-)

I have the same problem with sketches Sue.

This looks a nice relaxed piece though... a success!
