***THIS CHALLENGE CLOSES AT 12 am CST Two Peas time (10 pm PST)***
Challenge dates: 1 October 2011 – 16 October 2011
ART = Whatever you want it to be, right?
Welcome to the Embossed Art! challenge. It is my very first challenge and it was inspired by these projects:
Project 1 by Vanessa Spencer
Project 2 by Vanessa Spencer
Create a piece of *mixed media-like* art, and then add some stamped embossing. Or you can also attach some sort of stamped embossed element to your art. Fancy it up as little or as much as you want.
It does not have to be a card. It can be anything you want, as long as you stamp emboss on it. Embossed words on your project count towards the challenge, too.
Use any coloring medium you want (paint, ink, markers, crayons, pencils, etc).
10/01/11 ETA: You can heat emboss, wet emboss, or dry emboss for the challenge. Just as long as you have stamped *something* on your project.
Some possible *tools* for creating your art:
Bubble wrap, scrunched up foil or wax paper, pencil eraser tips, paper clips, background stamps, forks, masks, netting, rubber shelf liner, etc. Let your imagination run wild!
Your project does not have to be mixed-media. It just needs to *look* like mixed media.
1. It must be a new project created for Stamptoberfest 2011.
2. Upload your creation to the Stamping gallery and click the SOF11 - Embossed Art! challenge
3. Be sure to let us know what items you used to create your art.
4: Post a link to your project in the discussion thread.
Can project be combined with other SOF challenges?:
Yes, it can be combined with one (1) other challenge.
Additional Comments / Links: Below are my samples. There is more description in the actual gallery posts. Don't do what I did. I rushed these samples to get the blog posted in time and did not get artsy enough. Have fun and get crazy with your creations!
Card 1: The background stamp was embossed with white embossing powder.
Card 2: The stamped body parts were embossed with black opaque embossing powder.

Each qualified entry will be entered for a small prize. The winner will be announced by October 18th.
Just for fun, my bundle of fur Bailey will help me pick the winner. (Maybe pull a name out of his dog bowl?)
Now embrace imperfection and show us your creations!
