A Few Challenges in One



This piece covers 3 blog challenges this week. The challenge on Crazy Amigo's was Old Timer. The challenge set on Saturday's Workout was Raster Screen and finally Dymo Labeler on 4 x 4 Friday - I am quite pleased with all the elements and how they have come together.

I tore strips of masking tape and stuck them over the white card. I then chalked the whole piece in a couple of shades of orange and peeled the masking tape off to reveal the white lines. I stamped the image onto a separate piece of card using timber brown stazon and chalked the image with a different shade of orange. I positioned it on the 4x4, added some scratch lines with the TH stamp and inked the edges all in timber brown stazon. I then used my dymo labeler to make the words the good old days and stamped them out onto orange tape.

You've put a lot of work into this piece and it shows. The effect of masking the colours and the scratch stamp works well and I love how you picked out the orange with the dymo.
