An Explosion Of Colour

Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight have a fabulous Silhouette theme which was picked by the lovely Ellie.

My fabby teemie sister Avril has chosen to use the same stamp as myself.  How different they both look … mine an explosion of colour and hers (which you can see here) so soft and delicate.  CAS as it should be.

Definitely an explosion of colour going on here girls.  Wanted my silhouette stamp, which you can find here, to really stand out so what better way than to surround her with colour.

First thing I did was to stamp, then mask her off.  My background was made by using an Indigo Blu stamp called Blazing Poppies with a clear Versamark ink pad then embossed with a white powder.

Next came the colourful fun part.  Onto an acrylic block I dabbed  DI’s – Barn Door, Tumbled Glass and Mustard Seed, spritzed water over the colours before placing onto my cardstock.  Leave this for a little while so the colours soak in.  When dry lightly buff so you can see the white pop off the page.

Not sure if you can make out the butterflies around the edges, there are four of them.  These were stamped with a cream chalk paint and the butterfly is from a set called Nature I – also from Indigo Blu.

My flower was made by using stamps from PaperArtsy.  Used two sets one is here and the other is here.  Again these were stamped with a Versamark ink pad then white embossing powder, before being heated and cut out.

I would love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.  Also don’t forget that the winner of this challenge has $20 to choose anything they like from Flonz’s store.
