and happy Wednesday to you. Today it is Jackie's turn to host the challenge over at the Stampotique Designers' Challenge blog and the theme she chose was : use numbers. This is what she had to say :
"Numbers have been around for a very long time! They feature so much in our lives! I would like you to incorporate a minimum of one number into your project! I hope you have fun."
I have made a tag for this challenge and I had a lot of trouble with it... Luckily it all came together in the end.
I thought I'd use some canvas today for something different. So I started by glueing the canvas on a tag. I made sure the gessoed side was on the bottom because I wanted to use my Brusho's. I haven't used them very much because I hate the unpredictable outcome. LOL. Anyway this time it was the same. I really didn't like the outcome so I painted it over. I used gesso first, al few layers to get rid of the colour bleeding. I then painted it with a light blue. The numbers were made by using a white chalk ink and a stencil. I then sprinkled white embossing powder over it and heat embossed it. Much better ! Next I stamped the background and also went around the tag with my Archival ink pad.
I then stamped the girl and the dog and coloured them with Copic Markers, cut them out and adhered them on the tag on top of some washi tape to ground them. I used a few bits of the washi tape at the top to have a bit more balance. That was it !
I used stamps from the New Release from Stampotique :
