I have finally got some Daniel Torrente Stampotique stamps, so I can now join in with the Stampotique Designers Challenges. They have some fabulous dimensional ideas (in the archives) over there and on the Stampotique Originals blog.
So this is Perl and the Heartboy Twins, let's call them Beat and Thump, enjoying a sophisticated Birthday Party Bash.
I hope to goodness that The Bumps have gone the way of the Dodo and are now well and truly extinct.
Was there really anything more hideous about birthday parties in the olden days than the scourge of The Bumps?
Even if everyone held on tight you ran the risk of going face first into the ceiling, getting Chinese burns on your extremities and having your arms and legs pulled out of their sockets. If you were lucky that was all that happened to you.
If you were unlucky some damn fool who was too busy thinking about Birthday Cake let go on the up toss...
Poor Perl and she had even gone to the trouble of borrowing her Mum's super cool eye shadow in the subtle shade of Disco Blue.

Have you noticed Perl's décolletage?
It looks like she is wearing three necklaces doesn't it?
But with a bit of judicious doctoring it could easily be chest hair.
In fact she could have mantitty. Poor Perl.
If you are of a nervous disposition look away now.
I coloured this card with my watercolours and a small paintbrush, you can see the brush strokes.
Yes, lots and lots of brush strokes folks and I DIDN'T get struck by lightning.
Yep, still here smiling and alive.
Neither Copics nor Distress Inks were harmed in the creation of this card :-)
The designer paper is Corn Husk from the Basic Grey Urban Prairie range.
I had to draw two larger Nestie Label 8's because the largest label die only just fits The Bumps.
Poor Perl is rather long.
With or without brush strokes happy creating!
