This week’s challenge at Just Add Ink is a colour challenge using the colours More Mustard, Rose Red, Sage Shadow and Kraft. I did not find this an easy challenge even though I do have DSP that fits in the colour schema. I just couldnt seem to get it to work with any of the layouts I tried. I then decided to go for an Autumn theme with the colours. I wasnt sure how to incorporate the Kraft paper, as I only had a small amount. I ended up using the kraft paper to create brown leaves that I crimped before stamping and then cutting the leaf shapes out. I added the leaves with dimensional. I think that the tree from the Good Neighbour set worked well as a background stamp. I would also like to say that I thought the tutorial on the Just Add Ink site about taking photos was good. Unfortunately it hasnt made my photos any better. 🙂 . I need more practice.
This challenge really has my brain working overtime. I decided to cleanup my paper stock today (Saturday) and I came across some More Mustard and Kraft paper, so decided to try and make a classic native type posy using the Organic Grace set. I really love the fern and dragonfly in this set. With the flowers I stamped two on the whisper white paper using a combination of More Mustard and Rose Red. Then I stamped 3 more on another piece of Whisper White so I could layer two of them over the original two and the other one I used a dimensional so that it was slightly raised above the two base flowers. I then stamped the fern and other flowers around in a classic posy shape. I also used the same flower stamp on the kraft paper. The dragonfly was stamped using black ink and then sponged over with some Sage Shadow.
