I have a card to share today that combines the current Fusion Challenge with Ashley Cannon Newell's Make It Monday #168: Baby Wipe Stamping. You can check out the MIM tutorial here.
I love the gorgeous colors in the Fusion photo and knew as soon as I saw Ashley's technique using reinkers, I would be playing with yellows, pinks and oranges.
Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise and Hibiscus Burst inks were randomly dropped on the baby wipe to create an ink pad. Three sizes of Funky Florals flowers were inked, masked and stamped on a white panel.
The centers and star burst shapes were layered on next.
A couple of strips of cardstock are layered down the side, along with the sentiment.
Before I go today, I just have to share a crafty project my noncrafty daughter made this weekend for a class assignment. Her original vision was much bigger and would have involved plywood, drills and a string of lights, but dad was out of town and she really wanted to get started before he would be back, so she left the garage and started poking through my art supplies.
After applying a Gesso coat, the sentiment (die cuts and computer generated) was adhered to create a mask and then the canvas painted navy blue. The masks were removed and she painted in the word "dream" with Tim Holtz Gold paint.
I only knew you could buy a short string of battery operated lights because a friend (hi Pat!) had used them on a beautiful birdcage project a few years ago. Slits were cut in the canvas and the lights fed through and manipulated to follow the lines of the word. These lights were soooooo easy to work with and the battery packs sat nicely on the wood frame at the back of the canvas.
Thanks for stopping by,
