Hi and a happy Tuesday to you all.
I love this time of the year because there are sooooooo many things arriving that I
want need!! following on from CHA in January. That reminds me I have a lottery ticket that I haven't had checked yet, well you never know.
One of the must haves for me are the new stamps from Brett Weldele, who following on from designing stamps for Tim Holtz, Stampers Anonymous have brought out 6 new stamp plates featuring his art work, his own description is "they are a cross between rockabilly and steampunk".
The set I have used first is the "Racer Girl" set.
|Brett Weldele - Racer Girl set|
The background is a gelli print from my stash of prints waiting to be worked with.
The main image and car have been stamped onto watercolour paper and coloured with distress inks as water colours.
I have used every stamp from the plate except one, the tyre tread stamp is the only stamp not from the plate and that is from Tim's Roadtrip set.
The numbers are remnant rubs - numbers pack
various washi tapes
Speed Queen added using idea-ology label letters
and finally idea-ology mirror stars
I have made it all look a bit more grungy by adding vintage photo and walnut stain distress inks.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:-
Crafter Hoarders Anonymous Challenge - This is the start of a brand new challenge blog and is the brain child of Gloria Stengal. The first theme is "What's Your Style" and I think this piece shows my favourite style of using paints, stamping and colouring with a grungy edge.
country View Challenges - Theme this month "Painty Pleasures"
