Today we have a new challenge over at the Scrapbook Stamp Society challenge blog. This time the theme is Anything goes.
For my project I’ve used Sherri Ann Baldy IMG693. You can find it by clicking the image title.
This is another breath taking digital stamp from Sherri Ann Baldy. It is always so difficult to chose between them, but I always think about how many ways I can use the stamps I end up with. And I usually have ideas to at least two projects for the stamps I finally chose (I so ought to write my ideas down for each stamp, because I tend to forget, but who doesn’t?)
This stamp I thought would be so suitable for the late October season, where we often preserve our fruit and vegetables for the coming winter season. I’m not aware of any fairs in Denmark, where these preservations are entered in contests, but I believe it’s the case in both USA and England.
I had much fun colouring her, and I used the following Copic markers for the project:
Skin: E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20 and E04Eyes: B18, B16 and B14
Sleeve: YR18 and YR14
Scarf + Trousers: B28, B24, B32 and R27
Lid: YR23 and E13
Gherkins: G17, YG17, G21 and YG00
Prize: Y15, YR14, R59 and R27
As always I like strong colours, so I’ve tried to mix the colours in my image to the colours of the cardboard used, and I think that went pretty well.
The red border is actually a left over die cut from when I’ve made two borders. Depending upon how you turn it and do it, you can get more than one border out of this border die. I love this way a lot.
The flowers are also a homemade experiment with cut out irons. I call these for water lilies, because when you bend the petals a bit upwards, they look exactly like water lilies.
I hope you like my card. Feel free to leave a message to let me know. Please join my blog if you would like to see my projects on a regular basis.
