Happy Thursday! It's time for another stamping challenge at Red Rubber Inspirationals, with Inspirational #110, hosted by Kendra, to stamp your own background. Here's the sample that I scrapped of my little sister, when she lived in Hawaii.
I used the Hemingway Collection for all of the papers, except for an old piece of Basic Grey paper that's right behind the photo. I started by stamping the background with the For Everything Stamp Set using Palette Inks (burnt umber and burnt sienna). Then I stamped the fern frond and colored it in with Prisma markers using two different colors. The tag came in the paper collection, which I stamped using speckle background. The pineapple was cut out of the same background paper with my Cricut Expression, using the Life is a beach cartridge, and a mix of inks. I also stamped the title, which is the twist this month for the stamping challenge that I host @ Scrapbook.com, using the alpha-hip stamp set and Palette Ink (cote d'azure).
I misted the background a little with Glimmer Mist (jack frost), and then used inks for the water marks using the Well Rounded stencil from The Crafter's Workshop. As soon as I saw the round tag in the collection I thought of a coaster, so I hid the hole under the photo. I also added some burlap which I fringed the edges of, to give it a more Hawaiian feel.
Thanks for stopping by!
