Today, over at the Stampotique Challenge blog the lovely and talented Carol is our hostess. She likes us to make something 'black, purple and pink'. This is what she said:
" I love strong colours that really pop on the page, so I ask you this week to feature Black, Pink and Purple on your make for the challenge this week. " Carol x
I sat at my desk for ages pondering what I could make. I then spotted 'Unicorn's cousin' from the new release and though he or she would look very pretty in pink ! So that was that; another art journal was in the making :
I did cheat a little and have some white in my spread as otherwise it would be way too dark for my liking. I did these pages in a little journal that I made at the Craftorij a few weeks ago. It is filled with lovely Mixed Media paper and works very well.
I sprayed the pages with Goosebumps, which is a texture spray. It reminds me of liquid glue actually. It gives texture but also can be used as a resist as I did here. I used a blending tool and purple Distress Ink to colour the pages. The Goosebumps patches stay white.
Next I stamped a circle randomly over the spread, this is another new release stamp. It is a cube with 4 different circles which were meant for making calendar pages but I think it is great as a background stamp.
I then stamped 'Unicorn's cousin' twice on some white card stock, coloured them and cut them out. I took a black marker and went around the cut edges and glued them down on my page. I only used a part of the second one. The sentiment was made with a label machine.
I used the following two stamps from the new release:
