And we're off...the first challenge of 2011!
PINCH PUNCH 1st OF THE MONTH...
New challenge theme, for the start of a New Year!
The new challenge theme over on the Art Journey Challenge blog todayintil the 28th of January is to use EMBOSSING POWDER on your artwork.
Here, the pink area is all heat embossed- yes I realise its not the most subtle of colours but I tidied away all my most used items off the dining table (well, there was the small matter of needing somewhere to eat Christmas dinner lol, ) and this pink was the only ep I could find at the time of making. I stopped the heat gun just at the point the ep 'turned' in order to get a textured orange peel effect.
All stamps used are by Art Journey.
Button from the 'Willy Hélene' plate
Twiggy buds from 'Nature'
Dragonfly from 'Gorgeous Kids'
Hope from Pages'
Please take a look at the Art Journey blog where you will see more heat embossed ideas. I hope you will be able to join in the challenge. Dust off those Christmas cobwebs and New Years celebration hangovers and hunt out your embossing powders. With a bit of luck you'll find a better colour than I did lol :0)or you'll find Art Journey are giving 15% off all EP's during this challenge.
By entering your artwork using embossing powder and MAINLY Art Journey stamps, you could also win yourself a TEN EURO GIFT CERTIFICATE!!!
As easy as that!!
