This week’s color challenge at Stamp TV is to use crème de menthe, red hot and lemon drop. Here is an entry.
I chose to use two of my Rubbernecker Stamps, Aerobics Suck! and Ethel in Leotard. The main image was stamped on white cardstock with onyx black versafine, colored with prismacolored pencils & goo gone, cut out, then I decided to give her varicose veins, (hope you can see them in the picture), and her glasses have a coating of All Night Media Liquid Embossing Sepia Glass Finish, so she was laid to the side to dry. The layer under her is a piece of yellow matching the cardbase, it was run through the Cuttlebug with the Perfectly Paisley ef, then cut and embossed with Nestie Labels Thirteen, and sponged with some distress inks (Tumbled Glass & Fired Brick). The artificial crème de menthe layer was also cut and embossed with the Nesties. The red layer was also run through the Cuttlebug with an ef from the Heritage Collection, the corners sponged with Fired Brick. The sentiment was stamped on artificial crème de menthe with onyx black versafine, then cut out with a Ribbon Tag Trio die, I used another die from that set and cut out a layer of yellow to put behind it. The yellow ribbon was run through the tags and attached to the back of the red layer. The lady was added with foam pop-dots.
Thanks for looking, and I’d love to hear your comments.
