...how's that thing working out.....where I was going to post the new Making Art! Challenges from the Everything Wendy Vecchi Yahoo! Group on my blog every week????? as you can see...not very well.
Here we are at Challenge #20 (which ends Tuesday, yikes) - Use four different squares together for a background.
I chose to try something a little different....as usual... and stamped into hot UTEE on chipboard squares. After it had cooled, I rubbed some black paint over it and wiped off the excess. All stamps are Studio 490 of course...
I decided to pounce some gold paint dabber in a rough square shape for the background. Not sure if it looks rough or just plain messy. lol. For the sentiment, I just melted a puddle of UTEE (oh, it was platinum and bronze UTEE) on my craft sheet, lubed up a stamp with perfect medium and pressed it into the puddle while hot. I'm not sure sentiments work the best, as it's kind of hard to read, but at this point I had already tried it two times. The dots are bronze Viva Pearl Pen.
Last week's challenge was to use a bird, so I made an easel card for my nephew's birthday.
I cut the bird from black chip and ran it thru the gears Cuttlebug folder, and rubbed Inka Gold and silver paint dabber over it. I may have used too many metal colors on this, the bird doesn't stand out from the background very well, which is the star stamp embossed with Platinum UTEE. The crown is Friendly Plastic and a mold. My nephew liked it, so I guess that's all that matters! Or was it the money with the card he liked...hmmm...
Well, there you have it, another installment of "art in the country"... ha. Thanks for stopping by and checking out the latest, always appreciated!
