for the next few months you will see my work for the creative crew at split coast stampers
it is soooo exciting to be part of their design team!!!
check out their challenges for september
here is my design idea for the timeless portrait challenge
our challenge was to use the colours from the timeless portrait collection
river rock, basic black, cherry cobbler, very vanilla and island indigo
and keep it to a school based or children theme
well here are my monkeys set in a frame (actually it is a mirror!) that i have transformed.
i have sanded down some of the edges and rubbed some indigo ink into the frame.
i also rolled some musical notes over the frame which you can only see in a certain light-obviously NOT the one i took the photo in lol
on the right hand side i added some cherry cobbler paper ribbon all rouged up
i added some basic black striped grosgrain ribbon
and stamped some elements from the forever young set with
some crystal effects on top of the cameo silhouette
the trees on the side are done with white embossing powder
(handy tip-if you are planning on doing this make sure you go over the frame extensively
with your embossing buddy to really get rid of any static!!)
down the bottom left i added another littler copy of the main photo
to some more ribbon and vintage brads.
i also coloured some retired christmas ribbon with a marker to add some indigo highlights
looking forward to seeing what everyone else creates with this challenge
