This is one of the Sweet Pea stamps I won over at the Crafts and Me blog last week. This is my entry for the current challenge over there at the moment which is to Pink/Yellow/Brown. Here's a close up.
I've used Stickles and white gel pen to pop the image out a little bit. The paper and vellum in the background are from my stash and the raffia was tied round the wrapping on a present!
Then I had a go at the I <3 Promarkers blog challenge which is to use Black and White and one other colour. After seeing Vixykins gorgeous entry I was inspired to have a go at colouring an image in greyscale.
I went for flesh pink as my other colour, so I hope that counts. It's the same image again, coloured in shades of Ice Grey Promarkers. She's mounted on grey and black card and white glitter card. The ribbon is sheer black and I've used diamond black stickles. Another close up.......
Finally I had a go at her in shades of red and yellow.
This version was stamped onto a smacked acetate background, then stamped again onto white card. This was then coloured with Promarkers, the goddess was cut out and layered into the stamped background. I wanted to try a different card fold, so I went for this one. Cool eh?
The fab Stampin Up Baroque swirls are stamped in Versafine and clear heat embossed. The beautiful flower on the front section was made by my friend Kay, using a couple of HUGE flower punches she got at the NEC........and more Stickles of course!
