Pin Sights Challenge – December

Today I am creating a few cards for the Ellen Hutson Pin Sights Challenge – December.  The concept is a Color Trend Inspirational Photo is provided and you create based on what inspires you.  6a00d83451614969e201bb09d04577970d-450wi.jpg

I created three test card ideas, but only completed two final cards.   Both cards are inspired by the graffiti image and the multitude of colors. I used the Essentials by Ellen All Inside by Julie Ebersole.  My inks were from Altenew.

My first card I stamped the main big words in black, then I used a light color to stamp again just offset to create a shadow effect. Often graffiti has an inside color that is then outlined.  I stamped the sun and hearts both solid and shapes everywhere to fill in the space, then I used the coordinating inks to blend the background.  This was my attempt at making graffiti.  I completed the card with a small popped up sentiment from the set (‘hi, there’) and placed some die cut hearts behind it.  I feel I’ve captured the graffiti look, what do you think?

My second card puts the graffiti in a coordinated look, straight lines across the page.  I used the colors from the pin sight, one per row across. I put a main large sentiment and complimented it with a smaller sentiment.  I filled in the blank space with the hearts from the set.  To complete the card, I stamped and die cut the bear out and made him into a polar bear; to pull in the dark color (black) that typically accents graffiti.  I embossed the sentiment in white on polka dot (black and white) paper and backed the main card with the same polka dot paper.
