Hats off to....the colour of money!!

Been on a bit of a challenge blog hop to see what was going on out there and decided I could enter '2-for-the-price-of-1'!! If I'd put my mind to it I probably could have done more, but...hey, they'll have to be a separate post!!
Anyway over on The Sunday Stamper the theme is Hats and on Gingersnap Creations the colour challenge theme is The Colour of Money. Here is my entry.....which I think satisfies both lots of requirements!!


I opted for a purple theme to link in nicely with all those crisp £20 notes I was supposed to win on the lottery last night!!! (They pulled the wrong numbers out...AGAIN!). I created the background using acrylic paints and some spray inks, then distressed the edge and inked it with Dusty Concorde DI. I stamped Stampotique's Twinkie onto white card, cut him out and painted him with acrylics. The hat is a Dylusions stamp stamped onto some glossy card coloured with StazOn which I found in my off-cuts box. I finished off with a definition of 'hat' from an old dictionary, a computer generated quote....and a rather large bow!!

Thanks for looking and for leaving a comment...they really make my day!

yes!!! as soon as I saw it I thought "twenty pound note" you got the colours spot on.
I chose a twenty for mine as well, it really is a pretty coloured note.
your tag is great.

what a shame they don't pull our numbers out for the lottery, we could all do loads more lovely journeys with Kirsty. It's great being on the MIMM journey with you and all the other girls.
