**GAH! I wasn't supposed to post this until Saturday, so pretend you don't see it yet. ;/ **
Time for another So Artful Challenge! This week we have the following two images to inspire us:
Optionally, we could use the colors turquoise, red, yellow or blues. I had that painted door stuck in my head, and I made this:
I started with a piece of retired SU Sage Shadow (the reason I even heard of SU lo these many years ago) and I painted about half of it with distress crackle paint that didn't crackle. Once that dried, I went over it with my dauber bottle of brown paint to dirty it up a bit. I cut part of it for my bottom layer and part of it with a scallop oval. I cut the oval into fourths, colored the edges with a Memento marker, and stuck them down with spaces between them to mimic the panels in the door photo. (Are you tired yet? I am ...)
Here's a closer-up view of the paints:
The gold-ish stuff is the uncrackled crackle paint and the streaky stuff is the brown. I kinda like how this turned out.
I used some brown Pearl Pen to make the dots between the oval parts, but most of them got covered up with the floofy flower I made out of tissue paper. I edged it with the brown paint to make it not so white:
Lastly, the sentiment. I printed L O V E on Naturals White, cut out the letters, spritzed them with gold smooch, edged the letters with the brown paint, and stuck them down. Done.
I stuck the whole thing on a Bazzil brown card base, and I actually cut out a piece of Vanilla scra ... er, remnant for the inside so someone can write in it without magic ink.
One more time, because this card took a year or two off my life:
But seriously, I never would have tried that paint stuff without the photo of that door, so this was a good exercise for me, right? RIGHT?!?!?
Okay, now it's your turn. Go check out the So Artful blog - the photos, the other DT samples, and then come play!
Thanks for stopping by!
