Todays challenge over at CKC is to change the colour! This is a wonderful challenge and for those of you working on using up your stash, a perfect idea! I liked this so much, I’m going to do more.
I first started with the stamp set I used to counterfeit the pharmacy labels. This time I stamped them and used different colour inks to change the colour as well as different colour papers. Here is what I tried.
I then did the same thing with this adorable little owl. Look how cute he is.
Next I decided to tackle that naked chipboard we all have in our stash. I took a bunch of different pieces, a bunch of different items to change the colour, and here’s how it turned out.
The gold mist on the star was super easy, its not a solid finish, but I really like it, going to try to do a few more pieces with mists.
The glitter heart is my favorite, for sure going to do some more pieces in glitter. The stickles cloud turned out ok, I would do it again, but I’d paint the cloud first I think, then add stickles on top.
The other things were super easy, and with paints, markers, inks on hand, so easy to colour up a few items.
Then I decided to try the same thing on some wood veneer.
look how well these turned out!
I’m happy with the way these turned out, and I know I’m far more likely to use them now as well.
I took these little bits of goodness and put them onto a layout using my November kit of course. I am really pleased to say, I used those prima flowers! Yes I did. I used a lot on this layout including the little blue bird and the gorgeous glitter heart!
and here’s a few close ups
this one shows a counterfeit enamel dot. I make these all the time, just have them made up ready to go. I didn’t include them on the tutorial because I believe there already is one on here from awhile back. If you would like one though, just let me know. They are super simple, and cheap!
And then here’s a close up of the glitter heart. I love this. I love it so much I am going to make more.
I hope you will try some of these techniques too. So simple to do, and a great thing to do one of those night when you just don’t have the urge to make a layout, but you want to do something. Haul out your veneers, your naked chipboard (I know you have some!) your paints, mists, glitter, washi, whatever you like and change the colour. For me, I am far more likely to use say, a green arrow, than I am to use these items I’ve had kicking around for years. Have fun!!
