Here's a couple of cards, both made with the same Hero Arts stamp set, both looking quite different. For the first one, I stamped all four images onto white card, coloured them and cut out the squares. I stamped the flowers again, and popped them on with foam pads for a bit of dimension. I chose pastels - ProMarkers of course
Lavender, cool aqua and duck egg, blossom and carnation pink, pastel blue and denim blue. Leaves apple and bright green
For this next card I stamped the image directly onto a square of white cardstock, and backed that with green and stitched around it. The popped flowers were sprinkled with Frantage glitter, I love the coarse chunky look of these flakes
I will sort the winners of last months challenge out today, and post them here tomorrow. This will be the last challenge for a while, it's quite a lot of work, and I am a bit overrun with magazine and design team work at the moment, so I thought with the busy Christmas/Holiday season coming up, this would be a good time to take a break and I can start it up again in the new year. Don't worry though, there will still be frequent prizes here from Letraset to get you all in the colouring mood.....There is a whole week of giveaways from Polkadoodles coming up as well, so look out for that
I was browsing an old magazine yesterday, a middle of the road mumsy sort of publication. Look Better Naked it said on the cover - better than what is the question we must ask ourselves here. Better than Angelina Jolie? Not in a million years. Better than you looked twenty years ago? Unlikely. Better naked than with a nice comfy pair of M & S knickers and a bra that's gone a funny colour because you put it in the wash with the tea towels? Possibly. These days, I personally subscribe to the 'look better with as few of your bits showing as possible' school of beauty, so I didn't bother to read how the miracle was going to happen (I have a feeling it would involve a lot of running about wearing jogging stuff, I didn't fancy that). So I skipped on to the article on How to be a Domestic Goddess. Maybe I'll chat about that tomorrow, I am exhausted at the very thought of it, so need to lie down and recover....
