So, last night I found myself with a rare evening alone. Like, all of my family, except me of course, was out for the evening. Which left me alone! Did I mention I was ALONE? (End-of-summer-break desperation, folks, what can I say?) I hit the grocery store for sushi and wine, and then in true introvert fashion, I retired to my studio to stamp (and watch Outlander).
I had no agenda, so I looked through my favorite challenge blogs, and the current Color Throwdown #305 jumped out at me.
Don't you just love that graphic, with the stack of letters? It reminded me of a Crafter's Workshop number stencil that has a similar stacked look. I sponged on different Distress Inks from the same color palette (Peacock Feathers, Peeled Paint, and Spiced Marmalade), then spritzed with some Earl Grey Maya Mist to add the gray color.
The sentiment banner is done with Reverse Confetti's BEAUTIFUL BANNERS stamp set and coordinating BEAUTIFUL BANNERS CONFETTI CUTS die set. The paper star accents were die-cut with Reverse Confetti's OH MY STARS CONFETTI CUTS die set, and the wood veneer stars are by Studio Calico. The "nest" of black thread adds to the graffiti look.
Thanks for stopping by!
