It is Sunday, so that means it is time for a new challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations. This week we are featuring a theme challenge. The theme this week is…drum roll please…chalkboard. I know many people might get stumped with this one, but a little black card stock and a sentiment stamped in white will give you that chalkboard effect.
This week we are being sponsored by Little Miss Muffet Stamps. They are generously offering a $6 gift certificate for one random participant. (That’s enough to get two of their amazing digital stamps).
Little Miss Muffet Stamps was generous enough to provide the Design Sweeties a couple of digis to play with and I choose to work with Polka Dot Pals Ida. I love the whimsical feel to this digi.
I pulled up the digi on my computer and resized it to be a fairly large image. I printed it out onto some card stock and took it to my desk to be colored. I used my copics, coloring Ida’s out fit in with some pinks and yellows to match the colors in the inspiration photo (not a requirement, but I thought it would be fun!!!) I used Y32, Y35, and Y38 for the yellows, and R81, R83, and R85 for the pinks. Her hair is colored in with E35, E08, and E09 because for some reason I felt that she should be redhead. Finally I colored in her skin with a YR000, BV00, and E21 with a little R21 for her checks. I fussy cut Ida out and set her aside. Grabbing so actual chalk board paint by American Crafts, I painted it onto some heavy card stock and let it dry. I actually thought about adding literal chalk to the card for the sentiment, but I was afraid it would rub off when I sent it to someone. So I stamped out a Tim Holtz sentiment in some White Memento ink. I think this sentiment for this digi image. I adhered Ida to the chalk paint and then added the card stock to an A2 card. (And as I type this, I have realized that I forgot to color in the badge on her shirt…oh well).
That’s it for me today. I encourage you to take a few minutes and check out the other Design Sweeties amazing designs. You won’t be sorry.
