Sailing Pineapple - Lizzy Love Blog hop

Hello hoppers :)

If you find yourself here, you have possibly come from Ilaria's blog, welcome :)

Lizzy Love images are so great aren't they, The Sailing Pineapple sell the rubber stamps by Lizzy Love, there are LOTS to choose from. The stamped images are approximately 3.25" high.

I hope you have enjoyed the Halloween theme of this hop. For the hop finale, I have used the super cool Frankenstein image, image #92 if you visit the store :).
This quote is from Young Frankenstein. It is actually pretty long, so I shortened it, but you get the idea (whole quote is at the end fyi). It works so well with the image, dont you think ? I stamped the letters individually from an alphabet stamp set I have. My mixed media background is made with Dylusions sprays in blue, lime green and orange with salt added for that spotty/grain affect. I added a layer of white dylusions over the top to lighten it all up. I doodled around the edges in white gel pen and added a Halloween washi-tape pedestal for Frankenstein. The bats are dollar store plastic embellishment.

Frankenstein was colored with copics. I actually have about 25 copics, so if you ever need to know the colors I used, please ask, it is fairly easy for me to rediscover with my limited selection :) I added two coats of clear embossing powder to him and popped him up. He looks pretty great I think :)

Hope you enjoyed the inspiration here, now we have a great offer for you  :
