PTI WCMD - Challenge #4 Australia
Here is the fourth and final challenge for Nicole Heady's Papertrey Ink. These were all really challenging for me and brought me waaay out of my comfort zone~But, I did it thanks to Nicole AND those fabulous prizes she is offering :O)
The history of the Australian Aborigines to create special cultural highlights in their artwork is quite unique and beautiful.
Challenge 4 - Create a card using one of their signature traits~
#1. Dotted Outlines This is where the images are accented with outlines of small white dots.
or #2. Masking So the second option for this challenge is to do some sort of creative masking.
You can pick one to work with, or both.
As you can see I chose the #1. Dotted Outlines option, just because I have not used that technique and thought it would (again) push me outside of my "coloring box" ;-P
My Card -
The aqua card stock is from Recollections Paper Collection and this card, again, is different for me to not have a bunch of layers.
Stamps are Fancy Flourishes from PTI and the three snowflakes are from Martha By Mail, PSX and Studio G.
Inks are Sapphire from Creative Living and white dots are Martha Stewart Crafts opaque marker pen.
Embellishments are mini jewel brads from American Crafts. Sparkle embossing powder is Hologram from Stamp Cabana.
