Good Morning and happy Saturday – welcome to a new The Challenge. This week is a colour challenge.
I have been watching lots of YouTube videos lately trying to get my mojo kicked into gear, and a technique I wanted to try was smooshing/smootching… something like that.
Anyway, Kristina Werner created this effect by laying colour down on her craft mat then putting down cardstock – I have tried that before and it only worked so so for me.
This weekend though I watched Laura Bassen worked with a small piece of acetate so I thought I would try it. Her video is also the inspiration for my card along with the colour challenge.
I am not sure if I was really happy with how this turned out, it is my second attempt. I could not just stay with the one technique either I had to try the emboss resist too, the background script stamp is new so I wanted to try it.
I added colour then dabbed with a paper towel to remove any excess. I die cut the happy three times in back to give it dimension ( I won’t talk about my epic foam tape fail) and added a small white flag for the rest of the sentiment. I finished with some gems.
Supplies: White and black card stock, Kaiser Craft - Background Script, Hero Arts - Happy stamps and cut, gems.
Be sure to stop by The Challenge blog for all the details and see some amazing inspiration. Play along with us.
