It’s the first Wednesday of the month and that means it’s time for a color challenge at The House that Stamps Built.
The Challenge is open through Tuesday, November 10th and there is a $25.00 prize for our random winner. You don’t have to use Repeat Impressions stamps, but if you do, an extra entry is waiting for you.
Now let’s get started with the colors we choose this week:
I began by stamping “Polar Bear Kisses 1015-L” in the center of my card, then masked that off. I then stamped an assortment of “Snowflakes 8805-K“, “Snowflakes Solid 8912-I” and “Snowflake Outlines 8916-E” with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with green glitter powder. Once that was set, I distressed with Chipped Sapphire then watercolored the Polar Bears with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical’s and finished off with some clear gems.
I can’t wait to see what you come up with in your color challenge for What If Wednesday at The House that Stamps Built
Today I have a great technique from the Artistic Effects CD called, “Watercolor Gesso Tutorial.” I began by creating the background using Neo II Watercolor Crayons and Gesso, then masked and stamped the beautiful “Snowflakes” in silver hero arts ink and Wilted Violet Distress Ink.
The “Magic of Christmas” sentiment is stamped and embossed for a focal point by adding foil card stock to each side. To finish I added gems and called it Christmas!
