Feliz cinco de Mayo! The beginning of May brings new challenges from the Smeared and Smudged Ink Forum and a fun blog called Left Of Center. Both challenges call for using a digital stamp image.
The Freaky Freebie Challenge, Smeared and Smudged, lets you download a FREE digital stamp and you get creative with it. This freebie is one from Smeared Ink's Chicks Dig Guns set, Anita. I wanted to give my chica a textured background and to put the focus on her.
Here is my entry a scrapbook page I titled ONE DAY:
I printed Anita out on an 8 1/2" x 11" Whisper White card stock from Stampin' Up! (SU!).
The designer paper is from a set called First Edition Speciality (SU!), which I tore up and sponged with Crumb Cake ink. I adhered to the card stock and surrounded main image.
I printed out another Anita on scrap paper which I then cut out to make a mask to place over main image to protect it from my spritzing, stamping, and sponging.
I used a Gold Smooch Spritz mainly around Anita to give her a glow.
I used Early Espresso ink and an art stencil from Donna Downey called Demask.
The gun image was stamped with Black Staze On and is a stamp I found on Gorey Details called Steampunk Gun.
Flowers are from Prima and they are sponged with Crumb Cake and Early Espresso inks.
Washi Tape is 3/8" from SU!.
Words were written in with Black Sharpie.
An Aqua Painter and SU! inks were used to color in Anita.
I stamped her tatoo with a stamp from Queen Kat Designs Stamp Co. called Barb Wire Coil in Black Staze On.
I used Crystal Effects on her hair.
Her boots, corsette top, and fingernails have Black Enamel Accents from Ranger.
Silver Marker on gun parts to help make look a little more metal.
