Opus Gluei Challenge # 51

The challenge over at Opus Gluei this week is to:

1- make a set of whatever it is you are making
2- use NO patterned paper.

I made two sets of cards, based on a card I made at a Stampin' Up club meeting recently.
Each card uses 4 stamps and 2 inks.

I also made envelopes to match.
I stamped either the branch or the rose onto either a white or kraft envelope.
(Sorry, no pictures of those. They just seemed really boring.)

Just a simple little note card.
But pretty I think.

(Stamps: Owl-Unity: Rose-Unknown: Letters, Butterfly, dots, branch-Stampin' Up)
(Ink: White cards:Stampin' Up-Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry)
(Ink: Kraft cards: Stampin' Up Old Olive and Dusty Durango)

Next up is this set of ATC's. I really wanted to see the difference, up close and personal using watercolor crayons, colored pencils and Copic markers.

I am in LOVE with the watercolor crayon ATC. The colors are more vibrant. And you all know I love the bright and cheery colors. I used a Tyggereye Arts stamp. One of my all time favorite stamps. Somehow in the scanning process these little guys were flipped around. And being the observant sleuth that I am, I just now noticed. Hmmmm.

Hope you can play with us over at Opus Gluei this week.

Very cool! Not using patterned paper would be difficult, but you pulled it off fantastically!

Tyggereye said...

Wow those are cool. I love how you put these all up to compare. Too cool. Thanks for the shout out. :)

It's easy to become addicted to DP so I appreciate a challenge to break out of that rut!

Awesome idea to use different coloring techniques on the same image for comparison purposes; I'm lovin' the watercolor crayon effect, too!!
