Photocentrics and Teresa Collins Stampmaker are sponsering this month's challenge from The Studio Challenges. It is a Pinterest Challenge. Get inspired by this picture:
I must start with telling
you I really do not like purple. Nevertheless, I am always up for a challenge
so I decided to get inspired by the mask, the gold, the feathers and the color
FabScraps Angelic Christmas
on which I placed a slightly smaller water color paper. I placed it a bit skew
and stitched it on.
I then added some stencils
from Crafter's Workshop and a lot of different stamps I made using the Teresa Collins Stampmaker from Photocentric.
Next I cut out two photos
and some FabScraps PP slightly bigger than the photos. I creased the PP in my hand and
then distressed the edges with Dusty Concord distress ink before I smoothed
them out again and added beneath my photos.
The Chipboard is from FabScraps and I altered them first with gold ink and then with gold embossing
powder before I distressed the edges with Black Sooth distress ink.
I stamped with a text stamp randomly on the background.
I fuzzy-cut a cage and
birds from the FabScraps Angelic Christmas PP and added a purple feather. I also punched a purple
stripe from the PP but I made it more like the colors of the photo using Picked
Raspberry distress ink.
And last I mounted
I think the stamps on the background really supports the design of the page and it is so great to have the possibility to design any stamp I want using the Stampmaker.
All old stamps I keep in a plastic yar so I can look through them every time I make a page and choose the once I think will support the page.
