I’ve decided I need something to push me to create regularly, which in turn should mean I post more regularly.
So what am I going to do??
I’m going to try out for a design team. There is a new Challenge blog starting up by Mynnette called Inkspirational and I’m hoping to just scrape in my entries. You need to complete a card for each of the 4 challenges to be considered for the design team and guess what…… I’ve managed to get all 4 done in one day.
This post is the first of the 4 and it’s for the Inkspiration Case.
Here’s the Inkspiration Case provided.
and here’s what I made.
I decided to make a Christmas Card using the gorgeous Bells & Boughs stamp set. I’ve stamped my main image onto Watercolour Paper using Stazon Jet Black ink. I coloured the ‘fir tree’ branches using Old Olive & Always Artichoke Markers. The Poinsettia has been watercoloured using an Aqua Painter with More Mustard, Riding Hood Red, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive & Always Artichoke Inkpads. The largest Poinsettia has an extra layer as I stamped, watercoloured and cut out the centre petals and mounted on top using a Stampin’ Dimensional. Unfortunately as I’ve photographed my card straight on you can’t really see this. I’ll try and take another tomorrow and edit this post to show exactly what I’ve done.
Stamps: Bells & Boughs
Cards: Whisper White, Riding Hood Red, Bold Brights Pattern Stack (Old Olive)
Ink: Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Riding Hood Red, Cherry Cobbler & More Mustard (Inkpads and/or Markers)
Accessories: Wide Oval Punch, Lots of Tags Sizzlits, Big Shot.
Watch out for the next card in just a few…..
