Hi friends! I got a little pocket of time to stamp yesterday, so decided to play along with the current Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge. It's their 1st anniversary and Verve and a whole bunch of other companies are sponsoring prizes, so be sure to check it out.
I was itching to do a little mixed-media, so as I looked at the inspiration photo all those squares reminded me of a lattice stencil I just got. So I pulled it out along with some light modeling paste and slathered it on pretty quick to create the texture on a piece of white cardstock. I let this die and then began adding distress stains and paints to cover the background, then tore a portion of it to fit my card.
Next I stamped the Gandhi quote from Moments Remembered in archival black onto transparency and layered over my colored "wall" to give a pretty graffiti look to it. Next I finger painted some of the leftover paint onto some white cardstock, hit it with the heat gun and then stamped the large feather from Moments Remembered in archival ink over it. This piece is hand cut and popped up over the sentiment and "wall.". I added a little background piece with a piece of white cardstock embossed with the square lattice embossing folder and then added everything to a kraft card base, sponged with walnut stain and distressed a bit.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful day.
