Physco 'Shrooms..........

The Stampotique Challenge #159 this week is BOWS. My psychedelic 'shrooms are singing "tie a yellow ribbon on the old mush-room"!   Had a blast playing with this, do you know how much I love these stamps!!   Physco colors....love it!



When I'm playing around, learning a new technique, or just make too many bg's, I stash them in my drawer marked "backgrounds I made", but once in a while I actually stamp on the bg, and then stash that in with that particular companies stamps. That is where I found the piece that I choose for this challenge. EZ PZ, wish I would remember to use this stuff more often. All I did was add color to the 'shrooms with distress pens, and added some distress inks to the bg, and then added the bow!

 Thought I'd mention that I also have a drawer for "gelli prints", and "cool  backgrounds to use". That last drawer is where I stash junk mail, magazine pages and the like - never know what will come in handy, lol.

Some of you SU gals may remember MARVELOUS MAGENTA, I love that color and have quite a bit stashed away.  That "stash" word has come up way too many times in this post..........I M A HOARDER!  bwahhhhhh...............that is the color cardstock this is mounted on.

Now I cannot stop singing that song - I remember it so well from my childhood, I wonder what year it was released. You know I will need to Google it after my visit here!
The colours work amazingly well, I never would have the courage to be so bold, I would have been really boring and dipped into neutrals - they look as though they are party animals, out for a good time LOL.
