Hello everyone and so lovely to have you drop by. Can you believe it is February already? Time flies when you are having fun, and I must be having fun, for it really seems to be flying at the moment.
I'm here for the second time today because the first of the month means a challenge at The Artistic Stamper (see post below). But it also means a new challenge for Our Creative Corner and this month, the lovely Jenny from Pushing the Right Buttons has set the challenge for us, namely to use just three colours in our projects, Brown, Purple or Plum and Blue. Absolutely no black lines allowed.
Well here is my attempt:
I have to be honest, purple is a colour I hardly ever use, though I love brown and blue as any regulars will know. So, trust me, this was a real challenge for me. I decided to make one of my all time favourite projects, a paper bag with a tag inside. The tag is a #10 Ranger Manila tag, and the bag is just the right size to hold it.
I created the bag by layering up a distressed piece of DP, which I had crinkled up first, I then lightly rubbed a Pumice Stone Distress ink-pad over it to highlight the wrinkles.
Next I stamped an Artistic Outpost stamp in Plum Archival ink on white card and then lightly inked over it with Seedless Preserves and Pumice Stone DI over it. The latter to tone down the purple a bit. .. (I just couldn't help myself, - purple is a really hard colour for me...)
Anyway, onto the tag:
Finally the embellishments:
Well, there you have it, a tag in a bag. Please do go over the the Our Creative Corner blog to see what my wonderful teamies have created, I promise, you will not be disappointed.
Have a great creative month and see you next time!
