Color Fusers Blog Hop Feb 2019

Check out the Color Fusers Blog Hop and Color Challenge for February 2019. We share a NEW Color Challenge and Blog Hop on the 1st Monday of each month!

Welcome to the February Color Challenge for the Color Fusers Blog Hop! I hope you’re enjoying the blog hop so far!

There are always lots of fun projects presented by the talented members of the Color Fusers Blog Hop team of designers! This is a monthly blog hop and go live on the first Monday of each month at 10 am EST.

My projects today feature the NEW Hey Love Stamp Set from the 2019 Occasions Catalog. This is a totally original design and I love how it turned out. I hope you do too!

I knew I wanted to use some of the images in the Hey Love Stamp Set on my project. Since the images are so fun I wanted a playful sort of design. The blocks going this way and that just seemed whimsical and a perfect fit for the look I was going for.

The block shapes on the focal piece are actually stamped using a “C” sized Acrylic Block. I love the idea of using my supplies in unexpected ways like this!

A few project details:

  • The blocks are inked up with Petal Pink ink and simply stamped. I like to start with stamping the center block first and then stamp the outside blocks.
  • The Gorilla is stamped and colored in with the Bronze Blends Alcohol Marker.
  • The hearts in all three images were colored using the Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Marker. For the gorilla I also went over it with the Clear Wink of Stella Brush.

In this close up can you see the texture in the gorilla?

I believe we’re seeing the texture created by the Petal Pink ink, through the Bronze marker. It sort of looks like fur to me, which I think is another fun element, and by-product, of using the acrylic block to stamp the background rectangles.

I have a second project for you that features a technique called Spotlighting.

This next project does not include all the colors in this challenge but I couldn’t resist but to share it. It’s the same layout with a few color adjustments and the addition of the spotlighting technique. I’ve also dry embossed the Early Espresso card base using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.
