I just love how challenges get me out of my comfort zone so it really is a privilege to be on the Lavinia Stamps design team where I am challenged monthly :)
Each month, Lavinia Stamps runs a Creative Challenge, with a different theme, and the chance to win £40 worth of their stamps. The winner is chosen entirely at random using Python Random Generator, and you don't need a blog to enter, just click on the link here to find out what to do.
For this month's theme of 'Pink, Purple and Blue' I had a play with my gelli plate and alcohol inks after seeing Birgit Koopsen's video.
I tapped purple and blue alcohol inks onto the gelli plate using a felt pad. I love how you get the little dots of colour as it dries. Once dry I brayered a thin layer of acrylic white paint to lift the ink off the gelli plate. The pink, for the challenge, came from the Distress Oxide 'Picked Raspberry'.
I used the same technique on some stickers. I love making stickers!
I use my stickers in my diary
