Hello friends! Its July! May the 4th be with you! Are you excited about a long weekend? Have any time set aside for making? I know, I do!
It’s a new month. So, of course, there is a new challenge over at the Colorful Options Challenge! I think you will like this one: RED, WHITE, BLUE. As always, if you don’t like these colors, a rainbow of colors is always welcome. My contribution this month for the rainbow option can be found in my post-Rainbow Friends.
I did use all three colors of the month; but, the emphasis is clearly on red and blue. Remember, you can use neutrals with your entry, mine is clearly black. Have fun, and be creative! This set was inspired by Kindred Stamps. I love Star Wars and couldn’t wait to start a set of cards with a villains theme! So, here they are!!
I love making inky backgrounds. This one was fast and easy! I generally use watercolor paper for inky backgrounds. My go-to paper is Arteza 140lb watercolor paper. Once it is cut to size, I spritzed it with a resist spray for background stars. Then I sprayed with Candied Apple Red, Prize Ribbon Distress Spray, and water until I was happy with the result. Once dry, I sponged Black Soot Distress Oxide onto the edges and randomly throughout as desired. A finished the background with a splattering of white gauche.
Vader is stamped with Memento black and ink and colored with simple Copic Coloring (100,C3,C5,C7,C9,R29).
