Strathmore Card contest

Strathmore Paper Company is sponsoring a card making contest.   The rules are to use a Strathmore Card as the base, and use  any medium.   I am submitting these two for consideration.  For the first one, I drew the outline of the leaves on the watercolor paper (140 lb.)  Then watercolored, using the negative painting technique, and outlined the leaves with brown Sakuro Micron pen.

On the second one, I stamped the bough on white card stock near the top.  Then stamped the ornament once on green, blue, lavender cardstock.  The images were cut and layered to make a 3-D ornament.  Embellished with a Sparkle pen, and colored the hanger with gold pen.  Glued to bough with tiny gold cord bow. This was layered with the 3 colors of cardstock to the Strathmore card.   This iswhat it looked like.  The stamps were from Outlines Rubber Stamp Company, which is no longer in business.

This is a nationwide contest, and there will be entries from professional as well as amateur artists, so the competition is pretty awesome.   Wish me luck.   Cash prizes are $500. $250 and $100, plus $50 worth of Strathmore supplies.  I will know how I cam out in a couple of weeks.

Thanks for stopping by, and see you soon.
