Gooooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you all. Firstly, HOOOGE thank you's for all your lovely comments on last weeks challenge post and again to Simon Says Stamp for kindly sponsoring my challenge. You will remember that as well as their candy, I also had a bit of candy up for grabs. The remit was to leave a comment AND join in... so instead of spending several yonks sifting out comments and entries, I wrote all the entry names down onto paper, folded them up and then picked them out of a bowl (I haven't got a hat big enough lol) And... the hat issued forth the name of Lisette Baker. Thanks to you all for your amazing entries. Congrats to Lisette, please email me with your addy and I will pop the candy into the post for you. On with this weeks challenge. Being as I am time challenged myself this week I have chosen an easy-peasy theme.... use the colour BLUE on your entry. To join in is simples: make a little something, it can be anything you fancy. Add in the theme and some stamping and then pop back here and leave me a link to the place you are showing your entry. If you haven't got a blog/Picassa/Photo-hosty-thingy you can also join in via email or on Facebook. The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 10th November 2012.
My entry this week is a Studio 490 Art Part frame that I have coloured with Distress Stains... Broken China for the base and Black Soot for the frame. The insert was cut from cardstock and I made a smooshyness of inks on my craft sheet, dipped the card, dried it, dipped again and then overstamped with a large Studio 490 background stamp and Aquamarine Archival Ink (this goes soooo well with Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress) I added a little shelf by sticking a Scallop Trim across the bottom of the frame - I need to finish the piece off and add in some sparkly bits but as it is, it gives you an idea of what it could look like.
The ickle flower is from the Wildflower stamp set and Art Part set, overstamped with Jet Black Archival Ink and then coloured with Distress Markers. The floral decoration has some Art Part Leaves, coloured Forest Moss and overstamped with Olive Archival to add in some pattern. The base flower is from Not Just Flowers Art Part set, coloured with Victorian Velvet DI and overstamped with the corresponding flower stamp. I sanded the edges to shabby it up a bit. A Funky Flower Art spikey flower stamped onto Grungepaper and cut out and then coloured with Picked Raspberry DI makes a little extra something to look at and this nestles underneath a bright blue rose. This was made by stamping the 6 petal flower from Accents for Art onto Grungepaper, cutting out, colouring with Salty Ocean DI and then formed to make a rose. Finishing touches are the florally leafy border and the sentiment... loooove that sentiment!
I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support and participation of the Sunday Stamper. This little challenge started life a very long yonks ago and I never thought it would still be going strong 230 weeks later! Yikes!!!
