Heather showed us how to create an image only using dots- many, many dots! It works best on a stamp with lots of space. I used the new awning frame, Graceful Greetings and Thr Skinny for the sentiments. The stamp is Year of the Flower - Violets.
I chose Melissa's Warren Kimble as my inspiration as I used to be a rep and sold a lot of his art work in calendars. The simplicity of his work to go along with the Primitive decor was very eye appealing to me. These are also some of my favorite colors. The new pineapple was so perfect for this.
This AM challenge was to use one of the Masterpiece color combos. I chose Date in the Park. I wouldn't probably have picked those colors but I do like the finished product. That's what I love about Stamp-A-Faire - it makes you stretch your horizons.
I used Bloomers from PTI for the flowers and Leave It Be for the leaves. I needed smaller centers so I used the tiny star like dots from Birthday Cheer. I also used the stencil from PTI called Modern Background. The white background die is from Tag Sale Quilted. It's pretty combo.
The Hello cut from gold paper is from Eliz. Craft Designs.
I used a grid stencil from Simon Says and Spring Rain ink from PTI. The stamp is Peonies on Parade and the Sentiment is from Don't Forget to Write both from Papertrey Ink. I copic colored the peonies then clear embossed them as well as the leaves. I cut two "Sendings" to stabilize it and then used Jennifers trick to emboss the word by sticking it to some paper tape on a card. It worked great.
I've learned lots of tricks so far, keep out the good work.
