Raise The Bar this week, we're feeling April Foolish tehe!! Want to know what this weeks challenge is? Here goes...
Show us a style that you normally don't do! Ack! A challenge indeed! ;)
Now this really was a challenge for me, I've spent ages thinking about it, and couldn't decide what sort of card i wanted to do, the only thing i knew was i wanted to make a card that i could happily post on here, and not one that i wanted to bin straight away!
I finally decided to go back to some of my old favourite rubber stamps for inspiration. I love Art, so have quite a few art inspired rubberstamps; so i went through my 'Mona' collection and came across this stamp, that i'd never used. I then decided to stamp this image using a multicoloured inkpad (something else i don't do very often) and emboss it.
For my background I can honestly say I cheated!; I sprayed a scrap of white card with water, and then stamped my 'dirty' stamp onto it. The cheats way to clean your stamp and create a background, lol!
I decided to keep my layout as simple as possible. I limited myself to using just the background paper I had made, and my main image. I cut my background paper up to create a mosaic style background. I then trimmed my main image, distressed the edges and stuck it to the card. For my finishing touches I decided to add a few staples, these are dual purpose, as they ensure my image stays on the card, and add just a little decorative touch.
Now the big question, Did I Fool You? Would you have known it was a 'Suzi' card? I'd love to hear your answers. Hope you all have time this week to join in our challenge, it is a toughie, but I sure had fun with it, hope you do too.
