It's just a number!
It's a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges today and the theme is "It's just a number".
REMEMBER - YOUR MAIN FOCAL IMAGE MUST BE A HAND STAMPED IMAGE PLEASE - NO DIGI STAMPS.
OK, my artwork for this theme was started a few months ago on the train to see my daughter up at Durham University! I took a couple of pieces of artwork to do on the train and the journey went so quickly - it was wonderful!
This stamp is a favourite of mine from Chocolate Baroque.
Now, I didn't take many photo's (due to being on a train at the time!) so this was as far as I got on the train when I got it home to finish it off! I have done a simple wash of distress ink for the background and have carefully coloured the flowers in with spectrum aqua markers and a water brush.
It was then a case of adding numbers from 30 to 100 (all the "biggies") on to the flowers and using die cut numbers for the mat at the back. I have stencilled through the negative from having cut out the die cut numbers for the backing card for the sentiment of "It's Just A Number" and on the main background - it's easy to create your own stencils with the negative from your die cuts!.
I felt I just had to add "Happy Umpteenth Birthday" on there too!
There, a card suitable for any birthday from 30 - 100!!! and as I have said -
"It's just a number!!!!"
Remember, we would love to see your artwork over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges but the main focus of your artwork must be a hand stamped image, we do not accept digital images on this challenge. We look forward to your creativity and sharing your artwork with us! Good luck!
Thanks for stopping by,
