Stripes, ads and brides
An unlikely trio, each the subject of a card-maker's challenge. 4 x 4 Friday's theme was vintage brides. I was thrilled about this as I never get the chance to do a wedding card, and I really love vintage at the moment.
I covered the card with K&Co paper, then a small strip of paper I had painted with Twinkling H2Os on top of some peel-offs. I removed the peel-offs and was pleased with the resist effect. I then stamped some Peakin' Posies (Hero Arts) in gold and embossed them, and painted them with Twinkling H2Os. I cut them out and raised them with foam. The vintage image is by Stampington and I added a remnant of lace.
Wednesday Stamper is looking for stripes. I stamped silver swirls onto pearlescent blue card and then matted some langusge paper (K&Co), Sweet Pea paper by Fancy Pants and created a dress using stripy paper and a peel-off. The frame is by Bam Pop and the glittery letters by Dovecraft.
Finally Arty Girlz challenge theme is Ad-Dicted. "I want you to browse the tv and magazines for advertisments and use them as inspiration. It might be the format, the colours, the products, the slogan - whatever floats your boat".
I found some old adverts for Wills's cigarettes in yesterday's paper. I laminated them to protect them and covered a card blank with BasicGrey paper. I painted some paper with green and blue Twinkling H2Os and again used the resist technique with a "classic cars" peel off. The brads are by K&Co.
