• Challenge mash-up

    Hi there,

    So, I've been MIA for a while and I wanted to join in some challenges. So, I did what I really love doing - combining challenges.

    I had a couple of themes to pair:
    Purple (+2 neutrals /black/white)
    Simon Says Stamp product
    MFT sketch #448
    WOW! pearl embossing powder

    This is what I came up with!

    I first stamped the My favorite things Adorable elephant and sentiment using my Misti. I then covered the elephant and sentiment with a piece of paper that I tore. I wasn't too careful with it. Then I placed the Simon says stamp Kaleidoscope background stamp over it and stamped with WOW! embossing ink. I then covered with WOW! white pearl embossing powder and heat set it.

    To fit it to the My favorite things sketch #448 I dug out some washi in 3 widths and used the grid on my Tonic glass plate to place them. I made sure they weren't too sticky to prevent any tearing of the cardstock.

     I then ink blended Shaded lilac, Wilted violet and Chipped sapphire Oxide inks. Once done I removed the washi and buffed off the excess ink with a dry cloth. I probably should have left the washi til after I buffed, but I wiped along the stripes and it was OK.
    In hindsight I should have tilted the stripes, that would have given a more harmonized look. My intention was to ink blend the background in the same angle as the washi, but I just got caught up in the emboss-resist ink blending. Oh, well, what's a girl to do...

    I then colored the elephant with my copics. If you think he looks sort of BV-ish, you're right! I initially colored with BV's because I felt the Shaded lilac resembles that more. But I didn't like it with the Wilted violet, so I used V's over it. And I like how it turned out.
    I used my white Gelly roll pen for highlights and the nails/toes.

    To finish off the card I added a couple of Nuvo Pale periwinkle jewel drops.
    There, all done, full of mistakes and all. But I still like how it turned out.

    Copics used:
    V09, V17, V15, V12
    (and before that BV17, BV13, BV02, BV01)

    Thanks for stopping by, and happy crafting!
