Drunken Stampers See Orange!
Over at the Drunken Stampers Challenge Blog, we're painting the lounge walls orange in celebration of this week's challenge! Seriously, who doesn't love this happy, uplifting, half-red/half-yellow cog on the ol' color wheel?
You might notice that I kind of plagiarized myself on this piece, in that it's remarkably similar to a cooler-toned card I posted earlier this week. I'm really enjoying making little Grungepaper envelopes right now and riveting them onto cardstock, and I just wasn't ready to give up on this particular design. So, yeah, I re-did it in orange tones. I even played with a wood burning tool and didn't set the studio on fire. Cheers to that!
My Drunken Stamper teammates have created some fabulous art for this challenge, and I hope you'll check it out and then create your own orange-y masterpiece to share. This challenge is open through next Friday, June 17!
Have a fabulous, sunshine-laden week!
I used Tim Holtz's Retro Circles embossing folder on the Grungepaper and the Ranger Inkssentials Metal Foil Tape, and carried the pattern onto the background with a stamp from Tim's Bitty Grunge set. The "Thank You" was wood-burned into the little tag. I used Adirondack Dye inks in Terra Cotta, Rust, Sunset Orange, Espresso and Pesto on the papers, and Pitch Black Paint Dabber on the embossed metal.
