Colour Challenge at Vintage Stamping Challenges

Good morning folks, we've got a new challenge over at Vintage Stamping Challenges and this month its a colour challenge, purple, green, yellow, red and black - don't you just love those halloweeny colours?? As always you don't have to create a vintage project to join in the fun, you do have to include stamping though - no digis allowed. Our lucky winner will receive a fab prize of a $20 voucher from Flonzcraft so don't miss out on your chance to win.

I've made a page for my art journal, I love halloween colours so I had a lot of messy fun with my distress inks and some gorgeous Flonzcraft stamps. I don't know about you but I'm a terrible worrier so I've made this page to remind me not to worry about other people's stuff, I've got enough of my own lol. Anyway, I've used Seedless Preserves, Shabby Shutters, Black Soot and Spiced Marmalade distress inks. I began by dabbing the inkpads on my gelli plate, overlapping them here and there and then took a couple of prints, this was the first print so the colours are really strong. I added some stencilling and then stamped the circles using a Stampendous stap.

I've used lots of little characters from the Vintage Circus Elephant and Seal Set (you can find it here), some were stamped in black archival ink and some with versamark and embossed with white EP. The text was stamped with the Flonzcraft Fonterey Alphabet apart from the word circus which is from the vintage circus set.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
ABC Challenge: u is for unique
Corrosive Challenges: halloween colours
CRAFT: embossing
Crafty Catz: all sentimental
Hiding in my craft room: halloween colours

Thanks for visiting today,

  1. Hi Claire! Love your creations and this is no exception. You had me at purple and green. Love! I haven't tried Distress Ink with my Gelli's...I was scared off by the packaging telling me to only use acrylics. But you did it and all survived with awesome results! OKAY, I will be a brave li'l rule breaker and try it! :::insert laughing at myself::: Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. What an inspirational journal page Claire, bet you had great fun creating this one.
