Hope you have had a lovely weekend! It's Monday again and Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge has another fun theme for you. It's Carnival! From circus to the masks of Venice, it is all possible. Get inky and play along.
I thought of Mardi Gras when I heard what the challenge was, and I wanted to play with the three main colors of this party. Green, Yellow and Purple. But also with a bit of circus touches. What I find a very cool technique is to create a lot of layers with only ink and paint. So decided to do that on a tag.
First I created a background with Picket Fence Distress Paint and a stencil that will serve as a resist.
Then I started working with Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn and Seedless Perservers Distress Ink to get a nice colored background. The more ink you apply the more the paint will act as a resist. It was exciting because I had no idea whether these colors together would blend well together. I think they do beautifully!
The foundation has been done and now it's time for some stencils. I especially used same colors in combination with a stencil to get the more dimension in the color. After the stencil work, I some stamps out for a little bit of play and made more layers. The only thing that is real dimension are the wooden stars at the bottom that I painted black.
