paint the town RED
The challenge this week at the Hambo Hoedown is a sketch challenge, drawn by the wonderfully talented friend and co design team member Deborah of beadnstampn. I like doing sketch challenges because half the idea is already there for you, but "me being me" has to try and make it complicated by trying to put a bit of a different angle on it, when i saw the semicircle where the sentiment should be, all I could see was a huge sun. As I did not have any washi tape...wonderful stuff!! I considered making my own with tissue paper and double sided tape, but I went to the store to buy some insect spray to obliterate the little bugs feeding on my lovely chilli plants....Grrrrrrrr pesky things!!!! anyway, I saw some washi tape there so the idle in me bought that instead. I like the way this card turned out, the red SKYLINE, a rubber stamp by Hambo Stamps, in the polaroid frame has been sitting on my craft desk for a while thinking of how to use it...and now is the time, I loved doing the fake paint splats with a red stazon ink refill bottle I have, I considered using glossy accents over but thought it might resemble blood too much.
