'Colours' CJ entry

Tag

So another month has passed and this months CJ in the 'Colours' theme was Hannahbanana's Pink CJ. Her enclosed rubber stamps were sign language stamps spelling out ART and we were asked to complete two adjacent pages and a tag.

I decided to spell out TART instead............no not THAT sort of tart, the fruity edible kind ! I finally decided on a Cherry Tart as my theme.

I used:
  • Printed background paper (green & pink stripe)
  • Card (Pale green, Dark Green & Pink)
  • Stickles Glitter Glue (Fruit Punch)
  • Rub-ons (Alpha Making Memories)
  • Stamps (Hampton Arts - Cherry Background & Cherries)
  • Marvey LePlume II pens (Red 2 & Pine Green 72)
  • Water Brush
  • Chalk Ink (Pink)
  • Versafine Ink Pad (Onyx black)

For Left side:

I took the striped background paper and trimmed to slightly less than 4 inches square (to allow for a border when adhered to the supplied background card). I trimmed another piece of the paper to apply horizontally across the page as a separator. The Pink card was trimmed and then stamped with the HA Cherries stamp which was selectively coloured with the Marvey le Plume pens. This was 'huffed' upon to keep moist and stamped three times on the pink card. The waterbrush was used to shade the cherries and leaves. The word 'CHERRY' was was applied using the rub-ons as shown at the top half of the paper. The stamped pink card was adhered to the lover half and the horizontal piece applied and finished with dots of the Stickles fruit punch gitter glue. The printed paper was then applied to the card after edging with the Chalk Ink.

For Right side:

Another piece of the striped background paper was trimmed as the base. The supplied sign language stamps were stamped using Versafine onyx black ink to spell the word 'TART'. These were trimmed and matted onto the dark green card. The HA Cherry Background stamp was selectively coloured with the Marvey pens and stamped randomly 4 times. This stamped card was then torn as two corners and these were edged with the green Marvey pen and adhered as shown. The word 'TART' was applied with adhesive as shown and the hands coloured with the Stickles fruit punch again. The piece was again edged with pink Chalk Ink and applied to the backing card to finish.

For Sign-in tag:

This was just hand completed and stamped with the HA Cherries stamp to complete.

Hope she likes it (there have been some super entries to date too) :-)

  1. Hi Sid , Wherever did you find those stamps ? I know someone who would love them . Do they come in a full alphabet ? Love the card and with a cute lady it could also be that kind of tart. ;) Thank so much for sharing with us . Pat

  2. Nice take on the alpha stamps, great way to tie the bits together!

  3. Oh, I love it! Hannah will be pleased, I'm sure ROFLMAO.

  4. I really, really like it. The two torns corners edged with the green ink really make the card pop. Looks so good, I could eat it. Just kidding. Nicely done.

  5. What lovely colours - really fresh and gorgeous.


  6. I love the stamps..could you share with us where you purchased them or what company produces them. My granddaughter is learning to sign and loves to scrapbook...they would be perfect.
