It's time for another challenge over at The Stamp Man and this time we would like to see Red ! A little or alot, whatever your heart desires. There is the usual prize of a £10 voucher to spend in The Stamp Man shop so it's got to be worth giving it a go !
Now, I have to be honest, red is not a colour I like to use alot of so I opted for a splash rather than going the whole hog ! The project I'm sharing with you is a little gift for my other half for Valentine's Day. I started out with the idea of making a glasses case (as he's lost the original one that came with the glasses !) but I soon realised that the Grunge Paper wasn't flexible enough, so I changed it to a pen case ! I'm going to fill it with Gel pens but for the purpose of the photograph I've used some biros I had to hand. I blended DI over the Grunge Paper using Tea Dye, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain. I then used the swirl stamp from the Tim Holtz Reindeer Flight set, stamping with Archival Coffee ink.
The sentiment is from the Stuff to Say stamp set and the heart is from the Good Thoughts set. The heart is stamped onto Grunge Paper that I've coloured with Distress Stains Fired Brick. The ticket is also coloured with Fired Brick and then the ticket stamped onto it from the Bits n Bobs stamp set.
Simple project this time but I did enjoy stitching the Grunge Paper and will have a think as to what else I can make with it !
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge.
