Make Art

Hello Crafty Friends!

Just a quick post to remind you of the new challenge over at STAMPlorations ... The CUTplorations Challenge ... It's a monthly challenge requiring you to use die(s) and take inspiration from the monthly changing photo which for this month is ...


So what have we got ...
  • light
  • colours, red, orange and blue
  • lamp
  • curve
  • rays
  • crossing lines
Here is what I made of it this time ...

I was playing with some new stamps, Life In Full Color, and the CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies. The Challenge Rules, which can be found here in full, require you to use at least one die and at least one STAMPlorations product. If you haven't got any of their products yet, but would love to join their CUTplorations Challenge, there is a digi you can download here ... and, if you got a nesting die to cut it, you're almost there.

For my card, I die-cut the panel and left the die in place as a mask whilst stamping the brushes. They are not fully stamped as I didn't want them to be dominant hence I used my fingers only to apply a little uneven pressure, no acrylic block in sight. I then coloured them using alcohol markers, added the wavy lines, stamped my sentiment and layered on my base card.

Here is a last look ...

Pop over to the STAMPlorations Blog to see how my teamies interpreted the photo and to link up your entry too. A little birdie told me that you could win some of the word/phrase dies we used in our projects from the original post in their random draw.

That's it from me for now.
Have a lovely day!
