It is Wednesday and that can only mean one thing : A new Challenge over at the Stampotique Designers's Challenge blog.
But wait, there is something else..... It's my birthday ! Yay !
I will be spending a few days with my sister in law & brother in law which will be nice !
Anyway today's host is the lovely Carol and she wants us to use one or more stars. This is what she said:
"Feature stars this week, one or more on your arty creation. As part of your background or a main feature it's up to you. Just Have fun with the challenge."
I have made an art journal for Carol's Challenge.
I tried to create a night sky and used Pan Pastels for this. I stamped the background, although you can't really see that and used a stencil and a whit chalk ink, which was subtle but not as subtle as in the photo. When the ink had dried I used a fixative also to fix the white ink as I wanted to put a layer of clear gesso on. If you don't use a fixative the ink will smear. (I needed the gesso so that I could shade the stars after I glued them on.)
I drew a star and cut it out five times out of Pattern paper (Bo Bunny - C'est la Vie). I glued them on the page with gel medium and then shaded them with Big Brush Markers. I also used a white paint pen to draw some more stars.
The rabbit was stamped on white card stock and coloured with Copic Markers, cut out and adhered on some washi tape. I made the sentiment with my old typewriter.
That was that !
I used stamps from the new release:
Why not play along with us this week and maybe you will 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.
Thank you for stopping by !
Hope I gave you some inspiration !
