Hello all, it's that time again, time for another challenge over at
Stampotique Designers Challenge. This week our wonderfully talented Magda Polakow is our hostess and she has chosen the theme "Use a piece of magazine or newspaper"
You would think this would be an easy challenge
but for me, I don't use newspaper or magazines
very much. I mostly use stamps in my backgrounds
so this was tough for me.
Needless to say I scoured over my newspaper from the passed few days looking for a good piece.
I found something in the Michael's add of all places haha!
SO I decided to make a postcard for my piece and I went with the following Stampotique Stamps:
Hazel Jester - By artist Linda Peterson
Clothes Text - Also by artist Linda Peterson
I used a piece of printed card stock for my background and added the "flowery" piece of newspaper that I tore out of my Michael's add
This is what it looked like from the start
I then added some painting and washi tape
I heat embossed my text and Hazel and colored them with colored pencils (I made my Hazel a bumblebee to show her in a costume)
Lastly - I added a flower with a button center
Here is my finished postcard
Because Bees like flowers I just love my magazine piece in the background there.
I hope you have enjoyed my project for today and hopefully all the bees are buzzing around in your neck of the woods because that means it's warm and there are lots of flowers out.
