Last week, members of the Summer of Color, sponsored by Kristin, the owner of the Twinkle, Twinkle blog, were asked to vote for their choice of a color combination to use for this week's art projects. The colors chosen were citron green and turquoise.
First, I created my background by combining Dylusions lime green spray ink with some squeezed lemon distress ink on a craft sheet. I pulled white cardstock pieces through the inks and let it dry. Then I added some Dylusions turquoise spray to the sheet and added that to the previous colors. I repeated this process until I was happy with the results. Some random stamping with a Magenta dandelion was done with salty ocean distress ink.
Here is the first ATC I made, which I will enter into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge, since I do have one tiny button on the butterfly.
The die cut butterfly was sprayed with Dylusions blue ink. I let it dry and then used a polka dot stamp dipped in water to "bleach" some spots on the butterfly. Turquoise Stickles were added to the dots.
My next ATC was created in much the same way, using ArtChix Studio clipart, a sentiment and some dew drops.
I do love to use touches of black on most anything I make because I like the contrast.
Lastly, I made this tag:
A stencil, white gel pen, die cut flowers, Tim Holtz and Wendy Vecchi stamps, glitter and seam binding dyed with distress inks were used for this tag.
Have a wonderful day!
