Art Impressions Challenge #209 White Space is Nice Space


It's the second week of Art Impressions #209 White Space is Nice Space Challenge, plenty of time to still play along! AI also has two new clear stamps sets available at Micheals! My card features the Our Big Birthday Wishes set.

I started by stamping the big image and used my Spectrum Noir markers to color it. I used: AB1, AB2, AB3, AG1, AG2, AG3, BG9, BG9, BG10, BO1, BO2, BO3, CR7, DP2, DP3, DP4, GY1, GY2, GY3, IG1, IG2, IG4, IG6, MB1, MB2, MB3, MG3, MG5. Then I fussy cut the image out.

Since the challenge is White Space I couldn't add any pattern paper, so after some thinking I decided to do a white on white. First I stamped the sentiment on a white card base I placed a stencil over the base and pressed some versamark ink into the spaces of the stencil. I wanted a rough/nonperfect edge so I didn;t ink all the way to the edge, I also inked around the sentiment. Then I added white embossing and melted it with a heat tool.

Last I added the stamped image with foam tape. I decided against adding anything, instead letting the image and background take the stage!

Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you will play along with us!!
