Kay here and it is my turn to host the Stampotique Designers' Challenge this week! What might seem like a simple challenge to most, for some, whose work is generally full of colour, it really will be a challenge. But, for all of us, it's good to try something different. I have been on a black'n'white artistic kick lately because I love the crisp freshness it can bring to a card, journal page or ATC. Whatever you decide to do, keep it black and white with just a pop of colour!
Here is my entry for this weeks challenge.
Swiped the base card with an anti static bag before stamping with the larger leaf and the smaller flower stamps from the Dylusions stamp plate. Used a Versamark ink pad then embossing with WOW white embossing powder.
Stamped the smallest flower again onto a gold fancy designed paper and cut out the smaller inner flower to get the smallest sized floral on the plate. Coloured the inner with turquoise Sakura Glaze pen and the back of the flower with Cornflower Blue Archival ink.
Attached the flower onto the base, added a bead that looks like a washer for the centre.
Stamped out the word Bloom from the Darcy Wilkinson set, cut and added a black border with a pen, then inked the edge with Archival black ink. Adhered the word to the card.
Kept the card CAS, it is one of my favourite crafting techniques.
Thanks for dropping by, hope you have time to leave a comment as i always look forward to reading them.
