Its the time for a new challenge at PCJ. This week it was my turn to set the challenge. Quote:'This week is Tassy's turn to pick a subject - 'Black, White & Red'My challenge is called 'Black, White & Red' and I'd like you use in a project of your choice'
Don't forget, Each week the Design Team will choose the best uploaded picture and that person will receive a 15% discount code for our on-line store and sister site, CraftyCarrot.com (should an international crafter be selected, the cost of shipping will apply to the order. Also you must be registered separately with www.craftycarrot.com).
Have you ever given it a go at PCJ? Well why not try this challenge out? Its fun....if you want to see the other Design team's take for this challenge, have a look HERE.
I have used Hero Arts Dots stamp set to make the background of the card, using black and red ink.The stamp is from Pink Cat stamps which I really like and the wording also is from the Pink cat set. I have stamped the image three times so I could cut and layered part of the image, like the flower on the hat, the cat and scarf and mounted them with foam pad.

This is the first time I am trying out Alcohol inks on glossy paper but I love them to bits. So you will need, Adirondack Alcohol inks, I bought a set of three and I got Wild plum, Stream and Butterscotch in it. I bought the Adirondack blending solution separately(Its a pity you dont get it free , LOL) I have used Butterscotch and wild plum in this one. I just dropped droplets of the colours sparingly all across the glossy paper. Then dropped the blending solution here and there and they will start mixing. If you want them to look like dots, be sure to drop them in such a way that they remain as close to a circle as possible, and when you are dropping the blending solution, drop them carefully in the same way in the middle of the alcohol ink. And then, just leave it, it does the work for you!
Look at that..! It looks as if you are looking at the world from space...it does!!honest!
I haven't got the chance to blog regularly these days.Back to work and back to less crafting time.The Challenge on the Papercraftjunkies website for last week was :
I hope you can all join in with this challenge and find out who are our family?It maybe an interview with an older member? and record it via a LO , or record your family tree, or even start a journal with your findings about your family .... the theme is open to all interpritations, set by Melissa.
My take for this challenge was:
This is a personalised key holder I've made for my sister. She loved it!
All right then,
After I have chosen, two flower chipboards and a round one, I have decided to paint the circle one with Pink Acrylic Dabber. And this will be in the middle , since I was going to use only three chip board, the first and last will be the flower ones, but they will be covered up with patterned paper.
Step 17,18 and 19:
And last step is to put them together in the key ring!
This is a much bigger pic of the project. I do hope you like it and try it , its easy and fun!
PS: I am sorry that all the pics didn't come out in the same colour! Im still learning how to use this camera of mine. Sometimes the light seems great, but the next pic will have this yellowish tone to it.Dunno why!
