Hello. Welcome. I would like to wish all my readers
HAPPY NEW YEAR
I hope you had a fabulous and safe celebration last night and are all ready for new challenges and opportunities. First one of the year for me is a new challenge at Rubber Dance Stamps. In the spirit of everything new the challenge is going to be one mega month long party with a colour and a theme option, so you can pick your favourite. The theme is Vintage, but I went with the colour option for my inspiration piece.
I started by making a background using turquoise, ultra marine, violet and purple Brusho crystals and lots of water. Lots!! My brusho's swam about . Then I cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die.
I took the long skinny stamp from Rubber Dance Pines Fir Yews set and stamped it and embossed. I was tempted to stamp it many times and then emboss them all at once, but I went one and one, embossing with Christmas Green and Leaf powders until I had built up a pleasing mound of foliage.
I brayered some blue Aztec paint from Colourcraft on a piece of card and stamped and embossed the bird from Rubber Dance A Little Birdie stamp set. I fussy cut it and added some orange and olive green colour using Promarkers. I stamped Rubber Dance Happy Birthday sentiment and embossed it wth the Leaf embossing powder. I used an olive green mat and a black card base.
You will find the challenge link up and masses more fabulous inspiration from the team
