Hi everyone and welcome to this week's brand new challenge over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
This week's challenge is called ~ "I" Scream for.....
From ice cream to IndigoBlu, and inks to ice resin ~ this week the letter 'i' is our inspiration and we can't wait to see how you will be inspired this week?
For my project, I created a canvas that was inspired by a world of pure imagination and one of my favourite musicals/books, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory...
To begin with I took an 8" square canvas board and applied a layer of Dina Wakley's Sky Blue Paint over the top. I then layered some more colour over the top using Tim Holtz's Picket Fence, Twisted Citron, Stormy Sky and Tarnished Brass Distress Paint which all blended together perfectly.
Once I was happy with my background, I heat dried the paint and then sponged some more Antiqued Bronze paint around the edge. Another blast of heat to dry it was needed before moving onto the next stage.
Place the Layering stencil onto random areas of the background and sponge a small amount of Stormy Sky Distress Paint through the Bubble Layering Stencil. Once dry, I dipped a Distress Paint bottle top into Black Soot Distress Paint and stamped the circles onto the background. Heat dry the paint, then overstamp the circles with the bottle top using gesso, slightly offsetting them to the original black circles to create a shadow.
When dry, I applied Texture Paste through the Traveler Layering Stencil, adding the words Explore and Adventure onto the top left and bottom right hand corners of the canvas.
As always, if you need any further inspiration for this challenge, then you need look no further than our blog to see all the wonderful creations from all the very talented Design Team members and every week, one lucky random participant has the chance to win a $50 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp.
