Today's offering is for both the Play Date Cafe challenge 65 where this weeks colours are grey, green and orange. I have also used the Compendium of Curiosities challenge 28 technique over at Studio L3 so am entering this into both. (The links are on my sidebar)
This weeks offering is a double LO for my 8 x 8 album as I decided to try to use these challenges to get some scrapbooking done to as I am sitting with piles of photos
I started out with greyscale photos and matted them onto green cardstock. I used my new alterations die to cut flourishes out of orange (which had been sitting on my desk for a while now; obviously waiting for this !)
I used the negative of the die to mask and add a darker grey ink to the grey base card and mounted as shown.
Now for the Studio L3 bit : the embellishments ..... These were done using the technique of colourful layer fragments on page 57 of The Compendium of Curiosities. To stay within the colors of the Cafe challenge; and because I only have 3 pens (and one had blending fluid in anyway!) I used sunset orange and meadow green inks for the colours, I used small fragments and stamped with Inkadinkadoo stamps and Laurence Llewellen Bowen stamps. (I think some of his stamps are brilliant, pity very few people seem to have discovered this in my opinion)
So here is a close up of some of the fragments
Hope you all have fun creating something today and are blessed in it
