JUST FOR FUN CHALLENGE #10
(Blue, Orange & Green)
"Pole Swingin' Pin Up"
First of all---NO she is not green! The picture just doesn't show up as well as I would like, nor do the markers. :p
So...for this challenge I got the bright idea of stamping on Window sheets (SU)-----let's just say that while this was a great idea and I could envision how it would go, reality was somewhat different!
I started by covering my $1 doorhanger from (Michaels), this comes in a pack of 3 by the way. :p LOVE their dollar spot!!! Anyways...All paper is from (MME) "Penny Lane," except for the bright Orange cardstock, it's from (TPC). I used sand paper to sand all the edges, then added----guess what? (Color Box) Chestnut Roan chalk to all the edges. I'm so predictable, maybe someday I'll use a different color!
Next I stamped my "pin up gal" from (JFF) UMS7006 onto my window sheet. After drying, I found out that copic markers will wipe away your stamped image! Note to self: "Ask Terre what ink she uses when she stamps and uses her copics." Now that I'm on my second attempt at coloring my stamped image, I flip it over and actually color the back side of it. I can see my image...it is clear after all, and it works!!! :) Happy dance!!!
Now that it's colored I let it dry overnight. Don't know if it needs that much time, but I'm not taking any chances. I used clear half-size mounting squares from (3L), to adhere my window sheet to my paper. "Pin-up saying" also from (JFF) UMS7006 set, is added using pop-up dots. Finishing touches are ribbon, button, hemp & rhinestones from my stash----I really love the bling of the rhinestones on this!!!
Hope you like this project and it'll inspire you to use different items to create with.
*Copc markers used: YR09 Chinese Orange, YG09 Lettuce Green, B05 Process Blue, E01 Pink Flamingo, RV14 Begonia Pink, Y06 Yellow, BV04 Blue Berry & 0 Colorless Blender (to make the Blue Berry very light, it's the pole).
