WHIFF OF JOY CHALLENGE - RED AND GREEN
Our Challenge for you on Whiff of Joy Challenge this week is a colour challenge:
RED AND GREEN
We are not restricting you to just these two colours on your creation but would like them to be the dominate colours. Looking forward to seeing your great creations.
Charlotte and Babycham are going for a night flight to view the lovely wintery scenes below, they are of course a Whiff of Joy stamp available on the WOJ website, they have been coloured with Promarkers with stickles added to the sleigh and harness, then cut out and 3d on to the background. The Background is taken from Artylicious Seasons Greetings CD available from Graphicus, I have addd Glamour Dust to the trees and snow in the sky. The papers are by BG. The snowlakes (Which I am really pleased with) have been punched with Fiskars Snowflake punch fron Red and Green BG paper then covered with Glamour Dust and layered, I have added a bead cap and stickles to the centre of each snowflake.
I had a fabulous day yesterday with Owen and Charlie and should have a couple of update pictures to add to the blog soon. I am afraid I didn't do any blog hopping at all yesterday but I am sure you will understand, and I will try to get round to visiting you all at some stage today.
STAMPING WITH STAMPAVIE
We have a great sketch for you this week on Stamping with Stampavie. Please come and join us, there are some great DT cards to give you a start.
I was very disappointed when I first tried to stamp up this image, I just couldn't get a good clear and complete impression, after asking advice from fellow bloggers, I did manage to get this image, Annie from InknRubba suggested using Chalk Inks to stamp up, and Rach's advice was to go over the stamp with an eraser to take off any residue left from the manufacture of the stamps. Both do work!!! I stamped this one with chalk ink but was a bit worried about using Distress Inks on it so I just gave it a quick swipe with a DAMP waterbrush to bring in a little of the ink. The brown and Beige papers are from BG and the Flourish paper is from another Artylicious CD - Damask Delights - The Flower is from Prima, I stamped and coloured 2 Forever Friends Parcel Stamps just adding a little Aqua to the bows to tie in with the Flower. Rest from stash. Very Plain but hope you like.
OMG if you are still awake after all this thanks for staying with it.
