Hello! Samantha here with you in the Art Room today. I was pretty excited about the many beautiful shades of green being released this month by Stamp School. I absolutely love green and brown together, so for today’s color challenge I chose this lovely green and brown inspiration.
You can find the original photo here.
I used the medallion stamp from Graduates to create a stamped background to use as a focal point for my card. Doing so was simple.
I took a piece of Sweet Tooth Card Stock, the medallion stamp from Graduates, and 2 colors of ink (in this case Hot Fudge and Sour Apple).
Choose somewhere (anywhere) to start stamping on your card stock, and stamp the medallion once in your first color (here I used Sour Apple).
Switch to your second color (here I used Hot Fudge). Stamp the medallion in the second color, overlapping the corner of the Hot Fudge medallion with the corner of the Sour Apple medallion. Repeat this step on all available corners of the Green Apple Medallion.
Continue the previous step switching back and forth between your 2 colors until your entire piece of card stock is covered in the pattern. Then use your paper as a background or focal point on a card.
We’re adding a submission form below this post for you to show us your own Green and Brown creation. Make up your card and post it on your blog (with a link to our blog of course *wink*). Submit your card by adding it below. Make sure to post it to the actual blog post and not just your general blog address. You have until 11:58 on the last day of the month to upload any challenge entries. Your creations do not have to include Stamp School stamps in order to be entered, but we do LOVE to see what you’re creating with Stamp School products.
We will randomly choose a winner from each month’s submissions to win a prize package from Stamp School.
Thanks for playing along!
