This week at the Play Date cafe, the challenge is a colour splash challenge - to use black and white and a splash of green.
I was going to do something completely different on this chip shape, until I remembered I had this PSX stamp from years ago. I loved PSX (Personal Stamp Exchange) stamps and was very sorry when they ceased trading. Fortunately I have quite a few....(for my regular followers, that won't come as a shock!)
I painted the chip white, and stamped the image of New York in black. It is slightly too large for the apple (I am sure you're with me now!) and I thought about stamping it on a piece of paper and sticking that on, but decided to stamp direct to the chip. I cut the admission ticket from the embossed image I rejected, and added that to the bottom. The splash of green comes from some Inka Gold paint in a luscious green - watered down and applied with a wet finger - to highlight the chip shape, I thought it looked quite apple-coloured!
I mounted the apple onto a piece of black spotty paper on a 5x5 inch card. I am sending this to someone but I can't say who yet as they may be watching!!
