Happy Saturday Peeps,
It is time for another Our Creative Corner Challenge.
This week our hostess is the fabulous Marjie Kemper from She Who Stamps & Scraps. Her challenge for us is
Transparencies are so versatile! You can find them in shapes small enough for journaling and large enough for full 12X12 scrapbook pages. Whether you make cards or layouts, tags or art journals… you can easily include transparencies into your art. They can be stamped, inked, painted, misted… the sky’s the limit. You can even run them through your printer and diecut them. We hope you’ll join us this week showing how creative you can be using transparencies.
I haven't worked with transparencies very much and I think the only time I used them was to put behind an opening in a box or two I have made. So I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with this challenge. I finally decided to take it easy on myself, since I have been having virtually NO mojo lately, and decided to break out my pillow box die. I have had my die for well over a year and it was still in it package, I have never used it til now.
I cut out a couple of the boxes with my transparency sheet. Man, what a pain. the transparency sheets are hard to fold! It took a bit of scoring the fold lines to get the box to fold up and the curved lines were even harder, so much for taking it easy on myself. But I kept at it an got them together.
I decided to use the cute little owl from the Stampin Up "Warmest of Wishes" hostess set. Isn't he cute? I stamped him three times, once with black onto very vanilla and then again with black onto pumpkin pie and daffodil delight. I cut out his treat bag and his mask and added to the base. I punched him out using the owl punch. I punched out a 1-1/2 inch circle from some daffodil delight and sponged it heavily with pumpkin pie and cajun craze ink. I tied some 1/4 inch old olive grosgrain ribbon around the box and then added the owl with the moon to the box with some dimesionals. I stamped the little "boo" onto some very vanilla and punched it out with the jewelry tag punch. and added it to the box under the edge of the ribbon using a bit of a dimensional.
