Hooray! Another Challenge has been revealed this morning over at the Craft Stamper Blog!
I really really hope you all play along with this one, its so easy and so fun!
The Craft Stamper challenges always focus on a technique shown the current issue of the magazine, the idea is that you take the technique and make it your own...hence the name, Take It, Make It challenge! This time the technique is a fabulous ripping and tearing technique, showcased wonderfully by Helen Chilton on pages 78-81 of the May 2013 issue. The DT have shared their takes on the technique on the main Blog post HERE.... My contribution is 'big hair'.....
I decided to create a person because when I looked at the ripped and torn frame from the side it reminded me of a ruff, a kind of Victorian collar type thing. The whole body/wings/spool end project evolved from there!
I started by painting a wooden block and spool. White as a base, then turquoise and a grape colour smeared over the top. I stamped using paint and black ink, and added in a few bits of book pages here and there..
I glued the head onto the top of the block in the middle of my ripped and torn frame...
Hopefully you'll be inspired to play along with the challenge, the winner gets published in the magazine, and there is a fab stamp from Indigo Blu up for grabs as well!
