Hope you had a great week - I just returned from my twice-a-year art retreat with my crafty friends. We spent the whole weekend in our pj's making our respective styles of art and it was FABulous! Stayed up too late, ate too much, laughed ourselves breathless, and generally had a blast. Always good to go away, but also good to be home.
This week's theme on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is to do "Anything But a Card". I decided to go mini this week and made at ATC (Artist Trading Card - 2 1/2" x 3 1/2").
I used alcohol inks on all the elements, and started by attaching Ranger Metal Foil Tape to some white card stock and then embossed it with one of Tim Holtz' texture fade folders. I used stream, wild plum and snow cap mixative alcohol inks on the background.
Then I grabbed some of Tim Holtz' fragments, alcohol inking them with several different contrasting colors (upper left: butterscotch and lettuce, top right: rust and espresso, and bottom: red pepper and caramel).
Then I added the heart from the adornments set (red pepper), a pen nib (butterscotch and espresso), and the keyhole (rust and gold mixative) and attached each piece to a fragment using matte multi medium.
As usual, if you join in the challenge this week you will be entered in the drawing and have a chance to win a $50 shopping spree to Simon Says Stamp! CHA Winter show is only 2 weeks away - lots of new yummy products coming out! A few extra dollars would sure be easy to spend!
Hope you have a great week - I'll be back soon with some pix of the projects I worked on over the weekend... 'til then...
