It’s time for another Around the World Challenge and this time the subject is ‘confetti’. I’ve had this idea brewing for a while and so thought I’d put it into action. The confetti is a little hidden in the main picture - I knew I should have put more in - but the picture below shows it better.
The background is created by using the Alphabet Press embossing folder as a stamp. To do this, ink up the raised portion of the folder, using either a brayer or the ink pad direct, then press it firmly onto your paper. You can get different effects by inking up just part of the folder, and by pressing more or less firmly to get a shabby chic effect. It comes out reversed but I like that as a real letterpress would be reversed. This is upside-down, too, but who cares? It all adds to the effect (probably).
Have I mentioned how much I love this typewriter image? Well I think I love it even more stamped in black on Melon Mambo!
Now it’s your turn to have a go at the Around the World Challenge and I still haven’t seen a familiar name in the entrants, so here’s a thing: if you’re one of my customers (and by that I mean you have purchased from me in the past 12 months) and you enter a card into the challenge, I’ll send you a small free gift!
Don’t have a blog? Don’t worry… just photograph or scan your card, upload it to Pinterest and then link to it there.
Get some more inspiration for this challenge by visiting the Around the World Challenge blog, here. There are creations from almost every country where Stampin’ Up!® operates (we don’t have a Japanese representative yet, but we’re working on it).
