Stampotique Challenge #185

Hello fellow Crafters,

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 :

Why not play along with us ! You never know you might just win one of the two $30 vouchers at the end of the month. Just remember, no digi's and only one entry per person per challenge! 

Thanks so much for stopping by ! 

Hope you like it...

  5. Sweet Penelope looks so gorgeous, Corrie! Love all the blues here, too!

  6. I love the expression on the dog's face, it is wonderful!
    I am sure the Brusho background would look amazing but if you weren't comfortable with it then you were right to paint over it. That blue works so well.
    I love this tag.

  7. Love the blue. Would never know you had some brusho stress. Love the intense colors you used on your stamps.

  8. Wow, dat blauw vind ik super! Enne de combo van dit meisje en hond ook.Mooi hoe ze naar voren komt door de witte cijfers! Groetjes, Gerrina

  9. A great tag on canvas, I love the colours and this new character stamp is so lovely on your tag! Same as you I'm pretty reserved on the use of Brushos, I don't like too much the unpredictable behaviour! :)
