Welcome to  the February challenge for  Serendipity Stamps!  We’re switching things up a bit in 2014…The challenges will now be MONTHLY so you have longer to play. The design team will still provide inspiration twice a month (every other Wednesday), but you will have the whole month to play along! The Serendipity Challenge this month is Type Print or Sheet Music.  And for the Design Team, we’ve added the twist of a blended color background with the print. You can find all the details on how to play along with us at the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog. With each challenge we always have a gift certificate up for grabs to a random player. The special this week is Buy 3 items, get a 4th one free.   Lowest priced item in cart is free.   Good through 2/26.

For the continuation of the Serendipity February Challenge, I used this beautiful Spring in Provence image for the main attraction. After coloring it with Copics, I die cut it with a deckled rectangle. On a piece of text printed designer paper, I first used a brayer, then sponged on different colors of ink. I wasn’t real happy with the look, so I tried spritzing it with a white Mr. Huey’s spray. Still wasn’t working for me, so I added some gold ink spot images and some teal Nature Gives quotes here and there.. Better, but not quite it. Then I took out a big paint brush and some dye inks thinned with water and did several light ink washes over it.  You can still see some of the original text in areas so I decided to quit before the paper fell apart, lol. I added a rust layer behind the image and a larger vanilla deckled layer that I had to resize from a long deckled rectangle.
A leftover vanilla strip was embossed and added to the right side before attaching to the sponged, painted text background and these are the Copics I  used for the image.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please stop by and visit all of the Design Team blogs!
