Its finally here, our first challenge at Let's Ink it Up and we have made it easy for you this time. The challenge is 'Anything Goes' but with a twist, you must use some yellow in your project, even if its just a tiny bit! Of course LIIU is all about rubber/clear stamping so the focal point of your card must be a rubber/clear stamped image. We have a great prize for the winner:
Scrapbook Boutique are sponsoring the challenge and have generously donated a $20 voucher for the store
Here is my creation to (hopefully) inspire you to create with us at LIIU this time:
I've had this canvas in my head for ages and I've loved every messy minute of creating it. All the stamps used are from Elusive Images. I began by colouring the canvas with ecogreen paints in butternut and clamshell and then oversprayed with glimmer mists in daffodil and starfish. I tore strips from a roll of canvas and coloured them with the leftove painty inky mess on my craft mat. Once they were dry I rolled them into little roses and highlighted them with gold stickles.
The main image was created using by stamping leaves and plants from EI Autumn Hedgerow themeplate with versamark on coated cardstock, I wanted it too look a bit misty so I sponged some dye inks on rather than brayering it for a change. I then stamped and embossed the tree and fairy with Ranger Queen's Gold EP. I used mother of pearl mica flakes to add foliage to the tree, i love the effect they've created so I'll probably be putting them on everything now lol. The toadstools and unicorn were embossed in the same EP on scraps of white card and coloured with promarkers before being attached to the main image with silicone glue.
I made the frame by cutting out on my cricut and painting with Ecogreen paints in pomegranate and clamshell. Once it was dry I embossed with gold EP and a swirl stamp from EI. I ran a versamark pen around the inside and outside edges and again embossed in gold. I arranged the canvas roses and added some vellum leaves (from EI Diamante Delights themeplate) and some grungeboard flourishes (again embossed with gold EP). To finish the canvas I attached some lace and pink velvet ribbon to the bottom.
I'm entering my canvas in the following challenges:
