I'm getting in to stamping a lot more recently.  I can see stamp sets and know what I want to do and I'm slowly getting the confidence up to attempt it.  This stamp set from Skull and Cross Buns called Retro Sweeties gave me loads of ideas.  I have a particular idea for a scrapbook layout along these lines so tried a test panel of stamping and masking.

It was time consuming but fairly simple.  I cut through multiple post it notes at once to make masks and shifted them around as needed.

I then played with my watercolours, glossy accents, matte accents and chunky glitter to colour and accessorise the sweeties.  I'm not sure... half of me liked it best uncoloured.

And although it was just a test panel it turned out so well that I made it into a card.  I popped up either side on foam so the sweeties are in a sunken channel.

Now I have plans to super size and do this for a layout.  It won't be just yet though as I've just had some new stamps through from Skull and Cross Buns so I'm busy making samples with them... stand by!
