Whether it is one person or many, this is the theme this fortnight at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
A few weeks ago I went to my first ever craft retreat…OMG, how much fun are these to go to! There were over 40 ladies in one large room crafting away without a care in the world…crafting until we dropped.
It is fair to say that I loved getting up and wandering over in my pj’s and sitting down to craft, eat, craft, sleep, and craft all over again….
This is the card that I ended up with at the end of the first day.
Once again it uses some new background ideas that I picked up from Marjie Kemper’s on-line Mixed Media class.
(yep – having a ball with thinking a little differently)
I have used a honey-comb stencil 3 ways – applying ink straight through the stencil; inking the stencil, spritzing water on it and ‘stamping’ with it; and ‘stamping’ using straight water on it.
Because there is a torn piece of paper on this, I have coloured the image on this with one of the colours from the background, and on the other half I have coloured with lifting the ink with water and also using a white gel pen.
It is a play-around card, but I liked how it turned out.
The girls at FSC
have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of their creativity,
be inspired and maybe join in the fun.
are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,
there are spotlights and a top 3 as well.
Stamping must be the focal point on your project!
I hope you enjoy my card.
