We love a good challenge, and Stamping Tech Laura O’Donnell has a great one up her sleeve.
Laura is hosting a Color Challenge for World-Wide Stamping Weekends on twopeasinabucket.com.
Laura's challenge calls for making something with purple, lavender, red, light blue, and a neutral color on it. (Need to see a swatch of those colors? Hit Laura’s challenge post to see one.)
“These colors are not specific to any particular ink manufacturer,” Laura said. “You can use what you've got and just try to get as close as you can.”
The only catch is the project has to be stamped.
To make the background, she colored the white paper with the crayon. She then used water to spread the color.
While the paint was wet, she pressed the uninked Harlequin Harmony stamp into it to pick some off the color and make the reverse pattern.
What a great idea!
Laura’s challenge runs through June 19th.
Be sure to check it out. She will give away a Technique Tuesday stamp set and Technique Tiles to one of the participants.
