I wanted to share a few of the cards I made during this week's challenge of the Pro Scrapbooker's League hosted by Club Scrap.
I used the Random Doorways Stencil (which is still available to purchase in the Gotta Have More Dept. at Club Scrap) in the above cards along with bases I cut from 8.5 x 11 sheets of plain red and pink card stocks from 2 past Club Scrap kits. Birds of a Feather pink and Arts and Crafts red.
I stamped a simple birthday greeting onto white cardstock with the Gimme A Ring sentiment stamp also from Club Scrap in their Hybrid Ash Ink.
I had fun playing with my Distress inks in 3 primary colors - Squeezed Lemonade, Festive Berries and Salty Ocean. By starting with the lightest color first, applying the darker color to the outside of the stencil, and then alternating colors I was able to blend them into purples, oranges and greens. Very fun!
The kit was called Connections and the image was designed by our special guest at Retreat, Michael Strong!
I finished off the artwork with a speckling technique using the inks watered down and applied with a paint brush. Check out this fun video by Tricia Morris on how to accomplish this look. She uses a water color crayon to achieve the same look.
Thanks for stopping by!
