for the next two weeks, Create a Smile Stamps are challenging us, to let ourselves be inspired by their design team. They are a new stamp company, based in Germany, with a fabulous international design team.
I immediately wanted to participate. I picked this card by Christine, because the grey outlines really appealed to me and besides they made me want to use the “you color my world” sentiment and the chameleon which are in my only Create a Smile stamp set.
I masked off a border, stamped the image in grey ink and traced the outline with a grey alcohol marker, fading it out. Then I cut out and colored my focal Chameleon and created the sentiment banner. Instead of enamel arrows I used green and yellow sequins, which I found more fitting for my version of the card, because a Chameleon is not smooth and shiny, but rather a little rough.
I really enjoyed making this card and I am pleased with the outcome and I already have another card in mind, that I'd really like to re-create. I should make more time for crafty Challenges.
That’s it from me for today, have a bright day
