Stampotique Case Inspiration

We are to use one of Stampotique's designers as the starting point for our creation this week. I used Kim Howard for the simplicity of her piece and the similar amount of white space in her card...Ok mine is brown space but you get the gist.

It was my daughter's 18th last week so I felt Cone Hat made a very good flame for the candle.

One colour at Art Journey

The challenge at Art Journey is to use one colour. Give me a rule and I will bend it but not break it. My one colour is shades of mud. I did only use one ink pad, so in my eyes I have just bent the rules not broken them. I just thought this looked wonderful in these mud colours that are so near monotone it must be OK. I also thought the images worked superbly with this colour.

The stamp images were layered at different heights adding dimension and small white pearls added to the ornament and string.

RAQ: Unruly: Dimension to Canvas

There is a new RAQ challenge over on Unruly Paper Arts to add dimension to a canvas.
The harlequin background is raised and there will be a tutorial on how this was done on the 9th. Colourwise I challenged myself by pulling three colour cards out of Claudine Hellmuth's The Scrapbooker's Creativity Kit: Prompts And Ideas To Jump Start Your Layouts. Then I chose some stamps which I hadn't played with for a while.

Do come and join the challenge.
