Inject Some Colour


It’s July 1st so that means a brand new challenge has started over in our Facebook group!

The theme for July is ‘a splash of colour’…. so much fun to play along with!

It’s Helen here today with a project I made for the 3D challenge in Craft Stamper magazine’s June issue, which just so happens to be great inspiration for this month’s challenge theme…

I chose one of my favourite quotes from our Express Yourself range as inspiration for my project…
I stamped out the words then cut them up so that I could place them randomly

The 3D item we all used for this feature is our brilliant MDF Monoliths…

our first and only MDF product which was designed by Mark back in 2015, and made for us by the awesome Candy Box Crafts... you really must check out their website if you aren’t familiar with them! They have so many brilliant items and kits.

Ok… so firstly I cut a piece of card 17cm x 10cm to fit my Monolith and coloured it using black soot distress ink

Next I splashed it with water to create a rainy look

While it was drying I stamped and embossed flowers from our Create it set and cut them out


I used a neon pink ink pad to colour one of the flowers

I wiped away the pink ink so the black embossing was still nice and sharp.

Next I took the awesome rain stamp from our Sparkle in the Rain set and stamped it all over my card in black versafine ink


Then I covered my stamp in white acrylic paint and randomly stamped it over my background

I placed my words and flowers on the card and added a touch of pink to the middle flower as if the ink was blowing onto it


Next I stamped the stems from our Imperfection is Beauty set in black paint

I stuck my card to my Monolith, then it was time for some colour…
I used diluted pink acrylic paint and just kept adding more water and more colour with my paint brush until it started to run


I glued everything in place and then added more painty drips, and created a pool on the base of my Monolith too

I flicked some paint about too, to give the effect of it blowing off the flower

Once dry, I stuck my Monolith to the base and my project was complete…

I hope you like what I created! What will you make for our ‘splash of colour’ challenge?
