It's time again for another new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges. The theme this month is 'Blots and Splashes' and has been chosen by our lovely Carola,
Our Design Team produce some amazing samples so please pop along to their blogs to check out their amazing work.
Here's the card I've made for Carola's challenge:
I made several different backgrounds in many different colours before finally being happy with the last one that I made using Starburst Stains on black card as the splashes and blots showed up really well. The background reminded me of a dramatic firework display, so I decided that I wanted to make one of my favourite 'Fashionable Fifties Girl' stamp by Flonz Craft the star of the show. and doesn't she look glamorous! I coloured her, then heat embossed her with clear embossing powder to make her image pop.
After I'd made the background, it seemed obvious that I needed to go for a Vintage look to co-ordinate, and so I opted for the scattered postcard look, colouring and splashing them with Distress Vintage colours. It didn't look quite right having my girl in red and everything else in brown, so I changed my stamp to red and sponged the edge of the bottom postcard with red ink to give a little contrast.
