The Artist Trading Card challenge continues with number 101.
For this one I wanted to use up some off cuts of paper that I had trimmed from a previous Color Burst creation.
As you can see there was a little colour bleed and some faded blues and pinks on these off cuts.
To start I chose a piece that had quite a bit of white still showing and stamped on the sentiment (from Creative Expressions) and then trimmed this down into a pennant shape. I then added shading to the edge with a grey alcohol marker and black Indian ink pen.
I already had in mind that I was going to display this as if it were a notice on a pole so I added two pearls to the top to act as nail heads.
The pole was created by chopping down a barbecue stick with my Tonic scissors and then colouring it with a burgundy coloured alcohol marker.
For the background I chose a faded mostly colour filled area and then used from Impression Obsession doode flower background stamp to add a floral overlay to it.
Everything was layered onto the black pinstripe cardstock.
What do you think? Do you save all of your offcuts and scraps too? I have a large box full of them. Sometimes I just rummage for no reason …
Anyway, if you have any comments or questions about this post then please feel free to use the comments section below.
Thanks for reading and I will see you again soon!
