Stampotique Part Two!

I can't believe it has been a week since my first Guest Designer spot for Stampotique!
THANK YOU to all those who left such nice words about my first piece, I was very touched!
The second challenge this month over on the Stampotique Designers Blog is 'Perfect Pairs', so I've created this painty panel...
Lots of 'pairs' going on here!
I'll take you through the 'how to'.....
I used a Tando chipboard panel as my base, and painted it white first to get rid of the grey chipboard colour. Then, the first of my pairs...(or my 'twos' !) I've used two colours of paint, blue and pink, smeared onto the base...
Next, I stencilled a few circles. In pairs, of course!
You can cover parts of your stencil with masking tape, that way the paint will only go through certain parts. I left two circles free of tape in my sequin waste. I did the same thing with smaller sequin waste, then added dots...
So, lots of pairs of circles! I then added pairs of lines and dots in the base colours of blue and pink..
A little stamping....the number '2' of course!
(edged in black, and with a few black ink splats to tie the black stamping into the background)
I cut two stripey stalks from card (just like we created legs for the art doll last week), and then added two stamped stars...
I added a hanger by means of eyelets (two!), and threading with two strands of cord...
So...lots of pairs going on!

  8. You handled this "pairs" challenge with a fresh creativity, Trish. Love the step-by-step directions that make this complicated piece seem a piece of cake! Love those stars!

  9. I was sure I'd left my thoughts here? Really cool take on challenge theme... My favourite colours recently have been red & blue. Of course your painty panel is fabulous & all your "pairs" are so creative. The "a deux" just a perfect finishing...
    I have been looking at a pack of chipboard 'hangers' & thinking how great they'd be to put painty effects onto. Tfi. C :))
