First of all….happy new year! Although I couldn’t wait for 2016 to end, I can’t believe we are already in 2017! So let’s start all over again, starting with the Monday Challenge over Simon Says Stamp!!
I covered part of the ATC with gesso, as always, I start every project with a bit of gesso. I love the resist effect that you get when you apply over some color. I let the gesso dry then I took two distress crayons and blended them together. i love the mix of pink and oranges, I simply LOVE it!
I stamped the background with Archival Ink and this awesome stamp by Carabelle Studio that I bought while ago but I never used.
I grabbed two Distress Markers in the same tone of the distress crayon and color into the lines to let the color pop up even more.
I took the Numbered Tim Holtz Stencil and I applied Modeling paste over it in order to create the “2017”. On purpose I wanted the stencil to look like it was cut in line…simply because it is the beginning of the year and I liked the idea of something that is just “started”….don’t know if you get the idea? LOL!
When the modeling paste was dry I took again distress crayons and added color over the paste – I used the black ink to add some shadows and then I went all around the ATC sides to make them dark.
Do not freak out…. I know it is CRAZY that I did not add any stitches…but……… I am moving, so everything is packed away! 🙂
Hope your 2017 will be filled with happiness and health <3
