I have some fabulous news to share! I have been ask to stay on the permanent DT for Layers of Color! I'm so excited. I just love their Art Stamps. And today I am introducing you to another set, "Happy Birdday". This set just makes me smile.
And I'm using for today's Creative Belli Challenge. Yes, it's been two weeks and it's time to use some of your old neglected supplies. Today's challenge is to use paint on your project. And my paint is REALLY old, so I was surprised it wasn't dried up. I used some of Making Memories - "Spotlite". It's a lime green color. We would be thrilled if you joined us in this week's challenge. Please hop on over to the challenge blog for all the details on how to play and to view all the wonderful inspiration that the designers have created. I will also list their links at the bottom of the post here.
I wanted to created my own background and I had no idea where is was going with it when I started. See the pattern in the background??? It's one of Layers of Color Art Stencils. If you have never seen them, then hop over. The patterns are gorgeous. And so easy to use. This pattern is called "Vintage Medallion". I cropped mine up a little. The actual stencil pattern is actually larger.
Tip / Technique - Create you own background
I layed my stencil over a pale pink piece of cardstock and stenciled on Palette Bordour Blush. Then I ran it through the cuttlebug creating the raised dots. Next I lightly began to apply my green paint with my finger. And lastly I lightly rubbed some brown ink to help the dots to pop off the background. Seriously, this took only minutes to do. And I love it!! I didn't have to search for DP!
And then my little bird images just finished it off perfectly. The green folded ribbon is by Pink Paisley. Picked it up a while back and so glad I finally used it.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will join me again for more Layers of Colors projects!
