The Stampotique Designers Blog theme for this week is STARS and has been chosen by Carol Fox, Here is what Carol has to say:
“Feature stars this week, one or more on your arty creation. As part of your background or a main feature, it's up to you. Just have fun with the challenge”.
I have really enjoyed looking at all of the DT’s creations this week, some of the quotes are so beautiful i do hope you go and see for yourselves, meanwhile here is my creation.
The Marigold stencil is from Donna Downey. Now i am not a huge fan of red or orange but you have to use these colours if you want a marigold, right! I used DecoArt Multi Purpose paints in Pumpkin Patch and Red Barn.
Recently i used my Gelli Plate to create some washi tape and though it would use it again with the stencil. I didn’t do too well but managed to get a half impression on the first pull, this was because i used a piece of card from my stash that i have had for a long time not a piece of paper, really need to use up some of my stash! Filled in the gaps with Portfolio Pastels.
The centre of the flower was coloured using a baby wipe with one of the Portfolio colours on it through the stencil, this wasn’t too successful as the holes are very small, so to cover up the mess i went over them with Derwent Graphik Line Painter pens.
Doodled round the petals, which i won’t do again as i liked it without and added some little highlights of purple and white pen to the centre petals.
The background and the edges of the card were done with rust Portfolio Pastel and a baby wipe.
This is for my Friend Connie’s birthday, i purchased the Stampotique character Connie shows Off Her Nails last year and this is the first opportunity i’ve had to use her.
Coloured her in using Portfolio Pastels and Graphik Line Painters, fussy cut her out and added a star to her. A black Stabilo All pencil outlines her to add a little depth.
My Friend has a wicked sense of humour, she will be 83 this year, i know she will lol at the sentiment.
Added some stars that were over from a project i made last year and then mounted it onto black card.
Instead of making this into a card i decided to use a RIBBA IKEA box frame and make it into a card/gift.
I would also like to enter into the following challenges:
Thanks for dropping by, looking forward to your lovely comments.
