Hello everyone,

Another Wednesday, another Stampotique Challenge ! Yay ! Today the lovely Sue is our hostess and she chose "Perfectly Primary" for her theme and this is what she said:

"Take 2 of the 3 primary colours (and the colours that they create when mixed) and just use these on your creation. You can also use black and white if you like. I'm looking forward to seeing what you create."

I made a card for this challenge:

I chose blue and yellow for my colours. I started with a piece of card stock that was slightly smaller than my card front. I used a blending tool and two colours of Distress Ink; Faded Jeans and Mustard Seed. I coloured two thirds of the card with the yellow and then did the same on the other side with the blue which created green in the middle. Next I put a swirly stencil over the top and sprayed water over it.  I think this gives such a cool effect after you mop up the water. It 'bleaches' the pattern into the ink. 
Next I stamped some text in the same Distress Ink colours and dripped some white ink over the top. This reacts with the ink underneath so you end up with a lighter shade of whatever colour is underneath. 
I then stamped the banner on the card and on a piece of white card stock. The flags on the white card stock were coloured with the blending tool and the same two Distress Inks. I then used a water brush to take up some of the ink, to make it lighter. I accentuated that with a white pen. 
The main figure on this card is called 'Monster news' by Kira Nichols and is part of the new Stampotique release. I coloured him with Copic Markers, cut him out and adhered him to the card. Lastly I stamped the 'whatever..' on his banner,  drew some lines along the edges and glued the panel to the card. 

I used the following stamps:
