SDC 111: purple, orange and yellow



Last week’s challenge on the Stampotique Designers blog was a colour one – to use shades of purple, orange and yellow. I thought I would have a go at a technique featured in the latest edition of Craft Stamper magazine and to use a new Inkylicious stamp of poppies. I stamped the poppies onto white card using Memento ink and coloured the centres with Copic pens. Then I blended three Distress Inks – squeezed lemonade, spiced marmalade and dusty concord –  onto the card, then spritzed with water. While the card was wet I stamped a curly flourish stamp onto the background using Milled Lavender DI which had been tapped onto a craft sheet and spritzed with water. This created a lovely ‘wet in wet’ effect. When the card was dry I stamped the Inkylicious grasses along the bottom and the Hero Arts butterfly. finished off with a Tim Holtz chitchat sticker.
