Happy Monday, everyone! Time for some inspiration from the Challenge Team! Issa, York Tee, Channin and Tessa are here to share their takes on this month’s Waffle Flower Challenge! Join the fun by linking your projects to our July challenge too! wfc-201607-photo Isha Gupta Products: Celebrate Word Die, Tribal Bear Stamp Set, Congrats Stamp Set WFC 7-18 Isha Gupta What Isha Says: The inspiration photo inspired me to think light, airy and fresh. That led me to think feathers floating in the air somehow :) Ong York Tee Products: Little Mermaids Stamp Set, Little Mermaids Die, Waffle Flower Dye Inks in Daydreaming, Oh Happy Day, and Happy Go Lucky WFC 7-18 Ong York Tee What York Tee Says: I was inspired by the colors and the setting in the inspiration photo. I thought of something cool like swimming in the pool or diving in the sea. I used the Little Mermaids Stamp Set to create an under the sea scene. I started with stamping. Then, I colored the Mermaid and Oyster with Pearl with Chameleon Pen. For the rest of the images, I used sponge daubers to blend the colors using our newly release COLOR STORY premium dye ink pads. After coloring, I used matching dies to cut everything out. Once done, I arranged and adhered them to the card base. The mermaid was popped up with foam squares. Then, I stamped the sentiments. Lastly, I sponged some blue dye ink and stamped the water bubbles. Tada! Channin Pelletier Products: Little Mermaids Stamp Set WFC 7-18 Channin Pelletier What Channin Says: I was so excited about the color palette for this month’s challenge! My mind instantly went to the beach and with my new Little Mermaids set I could hardly wait to create an ocean scene. I first copic colored and fussy cut all my images. I only have a small collection of copics so I had to stamp some of my images on colored cardstock then color them to create colors similar to this photo’s palette. I then blended Daydreaming ink on a 5” x 7” panel of white card stock and then stamped and embossed the sentiment. Next, I cut two strips of white card stock, mounted them on craft foam, and them adhered them to my panel. Lastly, I added foam tape to the starfish and mermaids then adhered them and the fish to the panel.
