On the Stampotique Designers Challenge this week
is #149 - Pink, Turquoise & Polka Dots
I enjoy challenges that have a colour or theme
as I find it is a good starting point,
especially if, like me, you find yourself staring
at a blank card with absolutely zilch between the ears!
(i.e. nothing! not a single thought!)
I started by blending 'picked raspberry' over the whole tag
with some darker splodges on the edges.
Next I inked up my 'Swiss Dots' embossing folder
with 'peacock feathers'
and ran the tag through the Cuttlebug.
It didn't quite do what I had in mind, but 'hey' that's OK.
I then inked 'picked raspberry' through the
'mini circle explosion' stencil randomly to create polka dots.
I stamped "Head" (Stampotique)
(borrowed from Jenni - thanks)
onto some scrap card
and coloured his shirt alternatively with
'picked raspberry' & 'peacock feathers' Distress Markers.
It is so good having Markers and Ink that co-ordinate when working on projects!
I cut him out, popped him on dimensionals and put two strips
of washi tape to ground him.
From left over card scraps, I wrote the little quote
and also popped each word up on dimensionals.
I finished with a length of seam binding ribbon
coloured by dragging it through both colour stamp pads,
spritzing with water to blend the colours
and dried in the sun for 10 minutes before attaching to the tag.
