So it's the second alpha challenge over at The Craft Barn blog for 2013 - all the details for the challenge can be found HERE
This fortnight the chosen letter is C - I chose the word 'cat' as I have two cats who I adore! And here they are relaxing inside due to all the snow outside!
And here are my altered dictionary pages:
To start I masked off the definition of cat then watered down some white acrylic paint and gave my two pages a double coat so the dictionary pages were still visible but dulled into the background a bit. I then created the sky and grass background by applying distress inks in the following colours: stormy sky, tumbled glass, dusty concord, crushed olive and pine needles.
I used black versafine to stamp the cats, butterflies, grasses and leaves - all the stamps are by Inkylicious. I removed the masking tape from the definition and drew a border around it.
I'm enjoying this challenge but I do find it very difficult to get the dictionary to stay open while I'm working on it!!
I would also like to enter my dictionary pages in the Pan Pastel Challenge this week which is 'nature' - all the challenge details can be found HERE
Thanks for stopping by, Claire x
