Don't Ever Change
It's time for our monthly Design Team Dare at Your Next Stamp!!
Each month, Julie and Karen give the designers a fun challenge with the new release... this month our dare is
There are so many ways this can be interpreted... just wait until you see what the rest of the Design Team came up with!!
I love books! I especially love children's books, and have been collecting them since long before I had kiddos of my own. I took inspiration from this sweet book called A Color of His Own by Leo Lionni...
Yup... it's about a chameleon, and YNS just happened to release the cutest set of chameleon stamps this month!!
What I love most about his book is actually the artwork... the watercolored illustrations are beautiful! So, I decided to watercolor my own chameleon!
I started by stamping the chameleon from One in a Chameleon onto watercolor paper. Using a waterbrush, I brushed some Distress Inks onto the image... I really had no idea what I was doing, but it looks pretty good! :)
I cut him out, removing the branch he was sitting on, and propped him up on the letters I cut from the Bold Alpha Die Set.
The background was created by inking up one of my acrylic blocks with Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Inks, spritzing it wih water, and "stamping" it onto the paper. Then I splattered it with a bit of Tumbled Glass and Mowed Lawn Inks.
Now, be sure to head on over to the YNS Blog to see all the wonderful Design Team inspiration... and don't forget to leave a comment while you're there! One lucky fan will win a YNS Stamp Set of their choice!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
