Val would like you to create something from an envelope.. I love the idea of using every day objects for art. This week, try creating an art project that incorporates an envelope - any shape or size, new or used. Just flip, fold, score, tear, ink, paint, stamp, doodle, embellish or keep it clean and simple - just have fun!
The Design Team have been very creative and have got some gorgeous inspiration to share with you.. here is what I created..
First of all, I coloured the corner of a white envelope using Distress Inks and stamped Bubbles with a Versamark ink pad and embossed the image using white embossing powder.. see below..
Here's a little tease of what I made.. have you guessed??
Brilliant, brilliant challenge Val.. I made a bookmark!
I stamped Carol's small flower onto patterned paper using Archival jet black ink.. cut out the flowers and added them onto the bookmark.. the tiny bee from off the side of the Medium Bee stamp was stamped directly onto the bookmark.. I added a small tab to the top edge of the bookmark by using the same colours of Distress Inks and stamping the word Pull from the Interactive cube.
I hope you like! The colours are so vibrant.
Thank you for calling, please pop on over to the Challenge blog to see lots more inspiration and join in the fun! Each week the challenges are open to all stamps and you can join any of the challenges throughout the month, at the end of the month 2 random lucky winners will each receive a $30 gift certificate to spend at the Stampotique store. Good luck.
Happy creating, Gez oxox
