Goooood Monday morning, crafty friends.
I'm not really feeling blue. Well, maybe just a little. We put two of our sons back to school on the train/plane Saturday, and a tear or two WAS shed...
This week marks a return to"our regular programming," which means a new sketch from Atlantic Hearts. Here it is:
Have to admit, this one had me stumped for a while.
Then I decided to define the diagonal panel by leaving it UN-embossed. The colours and sentiment I'll get to in a minute.
I experimented with some new embossing paste, which I dyed with my Pacifica re-inker. Alas, I added WAY TOO MUCH, and it basically looks black.
|Embossing paste FAILURE!|
So I went back and sponged over my heart stencil with some Pacifica ink; much better.
Its called "Colour Me...!" and the concept is quite different. This week (first week of the month) is a monochromatic challenge:
Next week there'll be two colours, the next three, and so on.
I used CTMH's PACIFICA as a close match to Island Indigo, using that to colour my stenciled heart, and stamping the outline alphas with the same colour. They were then shaded with corresponding Copic markers.
Soooo, TWO fun challenges for you to check out! Atlantic Hearts sketch challenge runs until next Sunday--check it out HERE. Color Me...!'s first weekly challenge ends today, but you can play all month.
