Myth and Magic and you must use paint on your project.
I hope you enjoy incorporating some of the magic of mythology into your pieces! You can enter anything you like: cards, ATC's, art journal pages, collages, tags, bookmarks, murals, tapestries, bags, scrapbook pages... anything! As long as you used paint somewhere.
A couple more things I'd like to say:
Sadly this is Caro's last challenge, due to pressures of work she is bowing out but we know you will be seeing her on either the GDT or entering challenges. Caro is one of the founding members of the team and we all wish her the best for the future and thank her for her contributions over the years. Caro we will miss you!
And also, a big thank you to Cazzy for helping me draft this post! I'm in the middle of doing my end-of-year Uni assignment, which unfortunately is taking up a lot of my time!
The sponsors of this challenge are the fabulous:
Crackerbox Palace make real rubber stamps and ship to anywhere in the world, stamps can be wood mounted, foam mounted (printed on the back), or unmounted.
Crackerbox Palace have provided the team with some lovely stamps to use, and you can win a very generous prize from them too:
1st Prize is a $20 voucher from Crackerbox Palace
2nd Prize is a $15 voucher from Crackerbox Palace
3rd Prize is a $10 voucher from Crackerbox Palace
Please note the voucher does not include postage.
Here are some examples from the Design Team to inspire you:
I used my Crackerbox Palace Stamps called Rena's Unicorn, Sleeping Dragon and the sentiment "If you can't stand the heat don't tickle the dragon" to make a door hanger. I used Fresco paints to make the background, these are new to me as you can probably tell. I also used Sparkly Mod Podge and Artist's gel medium with glass balls (the dragon's bed) which I coloured with Distress ink. The images are coloured with Promarkers. I love these images!
This is my project. It is an Easel card in bronze and beige tones, and I use acrylic black paint in the middle of the top card. I used a beautiful unicorn stamp, courtesy of our sponsor Crackerbox Palace . I gave him a small shadow in light blue, almost imperceptible, I used glitter to the moon and also to a fairy, that I cut as an additional element. Plus I used flowers and ribbons.
I got nice and messing painting this castle with acrylic paints and adding the sentiment and dragon from our sponsors Crackerbox Palace . They were stamped in black ink covered in clear embossing power and then zapped with the heat gun. Then I cheated and coloured them with ProMarkers. (The paint was covering up the lines!) I've added a couple of brads for 'handles' and gone round the whole thing with a black Tempo marker pen. And here's my second card....
I've used the same stamp and sentiment from our sponsor. I covered a blank card with some medieval looking backing paper rounded off the corners and edge it all in brown ink, then painted it with some metallic paints, which I had as freebies from a magazine. I also made the flowers the same way, add a spray of colour with some Cosmic Shimmers. They left a nice sheen on the paper and of course, I made a nice mess!
We can't wait to see what you come up with!
We will show you some more examples next week on the midway reminder post.
