I have joined in the Daring Cardmakers challenge this week which is called Oh Sooo Juicy. The challenge is to use orange and lemon colours on the project.
Here is the little chipboard plaque I made ... I know I should have made a card but fancied a change :O))
I have used a piece of chipboard that The Artistic Stamper has just started to stock. It is A6 in size and really thick so I could use lots of different paints on it without it buckling. It is actually a book cover - the fab thing about this design of book cover is that there aren't any holes prepunched into it so you can get the colours/papers/images etc right to the edges. I started off by stamping "delight" Heidi Swapp stamp in clear and embossed clear too. Then I stamped the little flower head (Anita's) and clear embossed these too. I used Adirondack Dabbers in Peach Bellini, Lemonade, Sunset Orange and Sunshine Yellow. I dabbed the paints all over the chipboard and then once it was dry, I used a babywipe and smudged some of the colours over the top to get the streaky look. The babywipe also enabled me to remove the paint from the pre-embossed images so they stand out on the design. I then took three chipboard flowers, also from the Artistic Stamper and coloured these with the same paints. I splodged (note technical term)the paints onto the flowers and then embossed with clear powder so they have a textured look. I used a black marker to edge the board and the flowers and then coloured in some buttons for the middles of the flowers.
I loved this challenge as I love orange colours at the moment :O))
Thanks for looking again!
