PAPER GIRLS CHALLENGE BLOG: Challenge #146 - Black & White

Today on the Paper Girls Challenge Blog is our fantastic challenge #146, using only Black and White. I adore challenges. I love re-imagining how I can use up my materials in different ways to  create fun new things. I'm often inspired by techniques that I see online, especially YouTube. My favorites are Kristina Werner and Jennifer McQuire. Both ladies are uber-talented, and have so many ideas.

I was watching one of Kristina's videos, when I realized I had everything I needed to recreate my version of her project using supplies I had on hand.
Concord and 9th is one of my current obsessions. I adore almost everything they come up with, and I'm pretty picky, so that's saying a lot. One of my favorite stamps that I love trying to play with in different ways is their Hello Lovely stamp set. I really love that depending on how you use it, it takes on completely new levels of complexity.

This is pretty simple, and came together rather quickly. Use an embossing buddy, or some sort of prep powder for this, as you really do not want any stray white powder on the black paper. Then with Versamark and your favorite white embossing powder, heat emboss the image. Then use the white gouache paint to create areas of lights and darks in the embossed image. Let dry, and finish with a sentiment. That's it!

Check out the blog for our PG Challenge #146 - Black and White and share with us your new creation! We have quarterly prizes and would love to see you create with us.

After creating this, I also realized that it would also fit the Concord and 9th challenge blog, Where Creativity Meets C9 challenge for Watercolors. Enjoy!

Hello! It's a Happy Anniversary to the Paper Girls Challenge Blog! They are 6 years old today. Which is amazingly exciting! They are a bunch of great ladies who are pretty darn talented. Today's challenge is all about 6's.
I ended up creating a rainbow card with 6 washi tapes and 6 enamel dots. I love how clean and simple it is. Pin It
