The lovely people at Paperartsy - Mark and Leandra, and the Design Team - this week have been totally rocking the blogosphere with some gorgeous projects and challenges and many of us have been totally - and in multiples - inspired to take part. This, then is a little something for them to show my appreciation to Leandra, Michelle, France, and Liz, thank you ladies - and Mark, for editing the video so well!!
And it just happens that Hels' Sunday Stampers theme is 'Waterloo Sunset' - one of my favourite songs - with a theme of sunset/sunrise - and that is my colour scheme for this. So I am entering her challenge too..
Saturday video showed us how to stamp into damp grunge paste to get fab texture... I did this late last night before going to bed (I wasn't going to enter again at this stage, but couldn't resist having another go!)
I used Cheesecake, Smoked Paprika, London Bus, Butternut and Haystack I think.... blending with a paintbrush to get into the crevices of the GP.
I seem to have forgotten to take a picture of the step between the sanding and the finished piece - the camera battery was on charge!
I had a scrap of G45 paper in similar orangey colours, that I'd cut for something else and didn't use, and it's been driving me nuts getting in the way on the floor/sofa/scrap box ever since, so I gave it a watered down Snowflake wash to tone it down, and added the Tim Holtz Alpha Parts to spell out my greeting.
Tore some black card and mounted it up.
THANK YOU to everyone for a fantastic week on the Paperartsy blog - not sure how you'll better this one for inspiration, but I am sure you will come up with something!!
