Two, a coupe, twins, together… so simple, only two.  Dear friend Coby asked us to create around number 2 for the Stampotique month of De Craftorij. So here is my spread in my altered book.

I used of course Stampotique stamps: The Tweedles #9232, Alphabitties #6010 and design cube #10012, splattered mug #10017 with archival ink and with distress ink.

First I added some random texture on my spread with texture paste, then I used a star stencil to add some soft gel. I colorised my page with Tattered Angels Glimmer mist Trunk bay and with Glimmer Glam Caspian sea. I used distress ink faded jeans to distress the edges and the design cube to add some texture. Finally I splattered with High Impact metallic light gold.

I added some washi tape to have a footage for The Tweedles and then stamped them with archival ink.

I used distress inks to distress a scrap piece, I stamped on this with splattered mug for some texture and then with the Alpabitties the text twee. I added some plaster and natural burlap that I colorised with Glimmer Mists Walnut Gold and Bronze. Finally I fastened it on my spread with self altered embellishments (washer and bard).

So my two is a couple of twins. Thanks for the number 2 Coby!
