Hello and Happy Thursday! We have a new challenge up on the Little Miss Muffet Stamps Blog and I'm here to present my sample for it. 🙂 The challenge theme is Anything Goes, which gives the opportunity to just play along with anything you make!
I'm using a new digital stamp that is now available in the LMMS store, Mustache Guy Slicker. This fellow is a fun little stamp that comes with extra mustaches and even glasses! That way you can totally customize your stamp with clever layering of the png files.
What can I say about this card? Well, when I saw Mustache Guy Slicker I knew I needed to color him up with my Copics (yay!) and in greys with a punch of yellow! This is not a combo I use, I really dislike yellow tbh, but he needed to have a yellow slicker for sure!
For my card I actually cut down one of my square cards to the width of an A2, the height is just about 0,4 in short though. Still, I liked the rectangular look for this type of layout.
I used some stash backing paper and some extra watercolor paper I had sitting around. I did try the smooshing technique on the watercolor paper, but the yellow just did not show up. In the end I used my SSS hybrid yellow ink and a good texture rubber stamp. It still gave me the effect I was after so I'm happy!

Slicker: Y15, YR21, YR23, Y26
I used my Hex Chart to find a good not-too-bright yellow combo for this one. One thing about working with greys is that you really can concentrate on shading without worrying too much whether the colors will blend. It is really good practice!
