Sweet Pea Stamps Facebook Progressive Challenge Part 2
Hi there!Part 2 of the Sweet Pea Stamps Progressive Challenge has begun on Sweet Pea Stamps Friends & Fans Facebook group. If you played along with Part 1, you will already have received the adorable image we are using called A Clown For You by Katerina Koukiotis. If you didn't play along before, you can still purchase this sweetie at Sweet Pea Stamps. I think it would be so fun on a birthday invitation.
I coloured him with a mix of Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils and fussy cut him leaving a narrow white border. He was then matted with black cardstock before being trimmed out and popped up on foam tape. I love him in bright colours but think he would be sweet in pastels or vintage tones as well.
The 6 x 8 inch mixed media paper background had Cut Grass and Fresh Lime Dylusions paint scraped onto it with a palette knife. It was allowed to dry before Jet Black Archival ink was sponged through Dylusions Letter Jumble stencil. White paint pen was used to transfer the circular patterns from Americana's Kaleidoscope Border stencil and black pen was doodled around the design. Black and white rings were created with Dylusions paint and bottle lids. White embossing paste was scraped through Dina Wakley's Plastic Canvas stencil. To create a platform for the wee guy, lengths of blue starry washi tape were adhered to white cardstock and stacked overlapping slightly. A black mat was added to the stand.
Yellow fishtail flags were hand cut from stencilled and sprayed scraps. These were outlined and faux stitched before being glued down. Small punched photo corners were added to opposite corners. The computer generated sentiment was printed on white cardstock, timmed out, and matted with black. Foam tape was added to the back of these words to create dimension and shadow. To finish off the page, black Big Brush pen was used to edge the background before it was matted with black cardstock.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope this wee guy gave you a smile. Pop by the Sweet Pea Friends & Fans Facebook page to see what others on the DT and many of our friends do with this adorable image. We can't wait to see what you do!
Life is good; so is art.
