today is the start of the new weekly challenge at stampotique Designers Challenge.
This weeks challenge has been chosen by the lovely Corrie and she challenges us to use "book text" on our projects. I love using the pages of books, and inparticular dictionary pages to add to my projects and often tear out a page, add a light covering of gesso, and then stamp my images on it. I love the fact that it gives a great surface to colour on. So that's what I have done for my GDT piece this week.
Starting with a brusho background I stamped "Winter" and "Unleash Yourself" onto gesso covered dictionary paper. I then coloured them with grey shades of Spectrum Noir Pencils. The "Wear Grey" I have drawn freehand in the same style of lettering as the main sentiment stamps.
Some machine stitching in grey, randomly around the edge with the end threads left on, finishes off my card.
Please visit HERE/ to see the fabulous pieces from the design team and hopefully you feel inspired to join in with us all this week. You don't have to use Stampotique stamps but you must follow the theme. Your entry will be included in the end of the month draw where 2 lucky people will win a $30 voucher to spend at Stampotique.
Thanks for stopping by
see you soon
