Paperbabe Stamps Challenge 96 - Spots and Stripes

 Hi everyone, hope you've had a good week. There's a new challenge today on the Paperbabe Stamps Blog where the theme this time is 'spots and stripes'.

I made a card for a lovely friend using the gorgeous new Profile Face Right Dinky Stamp Set and the Mixed Media Template Set Profile Face Right these are for sale at an incredible price at the moment.

I started off this project with a left over gel print that had some splashes of gold paint in with some pink and peach toned distress Oxide inks. I'm enjoying using some WOW Pearl Gold Sparkle embossing powder at the moment as it's the first one I've found that keeps it's sparkle. I used it for the spots element of the challenge sponging embossing ink through a medium spot stencil and then embossing with the powder. 

The stripes element is added by scraping out some stripes with a craft knife from the gold cardstock which has kraft core and I really like the texture this gives. The colouring is Prismacolor Pencils over a base of Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic in Nougat and Terracotta.

I hope you'll join us in the challenge, there's a lovely prize from Kim for the winner.

Have a great weekend!
