Our challenge at Daisy Chain Challenge was ‘Anything Goes’. I recently went to a stamp convention and fell in love with a new (to me ) technique. You use versamark ink to stamp and image and then you use distress inks to add color. The stamped image will resist the ink. I used a stamp I had on hand and just had fun experimenting with the technique.
She was such a fun image that I wanted her to look like someone who just enjoyed life. I didnt have a stamp that had a sentiment that I wanted to use so I created one in my word processor on my computer.
For the design team at CCC Digi Creations I used an image by Pink Gem Designs titled Milly in the Rain. I was inspired by the kids song ” Rain, Rain, go away”. I usually like to color my images but I loved the soft feel of the colored image so I opted to use it instead. It is hard to tell in the photo but I used glossy medium on the raindrops and the rain puddle at her feet.
For the design team at Creative Craft Cottage I used an image by All Dressed Up titled Pretty in Plaits. I just lightly colored the image and then placed it behind a frame I created. Our theme this time was ‘Eileen’s challenge-include a lavender ribbon or bow’. Because I wanted to also place it behind the frame but next to the image I didnt center the image but placed it more to the right.
