It’s a five Sunday month which can only mean one thing – it’s time for another fun “5” mini challenge over at Anything But A Card. Create anything you like, except a card, that links to the theme of five. Here’s my DT piece:
Yes, a cube does have six faces but, craftily, as an artist’s trading block, only five are on display. And each face is decorated with a …er.. different face.
These moody looking misses with attitude are from a stamp set by AHA and I’ve coloured them with Polychromos.
I used some white coated grey board to make the cube itself. The white coating meant I was able to colour it with distress inks – Ripe Persimmon, Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick. I then used the ghosting technique with a stencil to create circles.
I used the other stamps in the set plus some background stamps and a white gel pen to create the rest of the background.
Once the girls were stamped and coloured, I added them to each face of the bloc. I created the words on my computer.
Mardy, is a word used a lot in my part of the world, and means sulky. If you are a fan of the Arctic Monkeys, who come from Sheffield, you will be familiar with their song “Mardy Bum.”
Be sure to buzz over to Anything But A Card and see what the rest of the DT have created and hope you will have time to join in with the fun this week.
Thanks for buzzing by.
