For today's AALL & Create GDT post I have made a card. I tried to do something different today and have stolen one of Abs' background techniques...
I inked up this background stamp with Distress Oxide inks. I used only three colours: Worn Lipstick, Mustard Seed and Salty Ocean. I rubbed the stamp with my fingers where the colours met to mix them, then spritzed with a small amount of water and stamped. The pink and blue made purple, pink and yellow made orange and the yellow and blue made green ! I did think it was too bright though, so I brayered over white paint until I was happy with the result.
Next I stamped the edges with grey and black ink, overlapping the two. I also added some doodle lines which you can see in the next picture.
I then thought about Abs' technique with Distress Crayons, so I gave it a go. Put the stencil on, scribble with two colours of Distress Crayons and blend out with your finger. I chose colours that went with the background.
I chose my focal point, this little girl by Janet Klein, coloured her with my Copics and cut her out.
Before I put everything together I added some splatters with a black paint pen.
I added two bits of washi tape, one for her to stand on and one in the right hand top corner. I glued her down. For the sentiment I chose a sticker by Tim Holtz that I thought fitted her well.
I have used the following stamps:
#336 - Bold Alphas by Bipasha BK
#338 - Background Noise by Janet Klein
#358 - Paw Prints by Janet Klein
#87 - Totally Dotty by Autour de Mwa
