STAMPlorations CUTplorations January Challenge ...

As the New Year begins it is time for a new challenge at STAMPlorations CUTplorations - this month we are looking to the catwalk for inspiration ...

This image has been chosen to inspire you to create a project from an element that catches your eye... is it the colours? the layout? the ladies? ... we need your projects to involve die cutting and one STAMPlorations product.   I was inspired by the colours and the small detail of the black and white stripe down the sides of the third model.  This is the card I created:

I created a panel to die cut the 'Happy' and '2019' using alcohol inks and foil on yupo card - I love the vibrancy of the colours you get from using alcohol inks.  I stamped the 'graffiti style' background using distress inks and a mixture of STAMPloration stamps.  I adhered the panel to the card base using foam tape to add dimension as well as the strip of black and white washi tape.

I used:

STAMPlorations Stamp Sets:
CUTploration dies:
Distress Inks - Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers, Twisted Citron

I hope you will be inspired to join in with the challenge and look forward to visiting your blogs.
