Tando Creative Challenge Blog

The theme for the challenge blog this month is:-

NUMBERS

I just love numbers... perhaps thats why I work with them everyday?? lol

Anyway, here is my number based ATC:-



The base is one of the Tando ATC's - these are just FAB, so sturdy and can take all products without flinching!! lol....I applied some texture paste thro' the oblong/square 12" x 3" mask and stippled the finish with my palette knife.....once dry I painted using various Paperartsy fresco finish paints...then added some Treasure gold to the hi-lighted areas.  The heart, from a grab bag of hearts, was painted using the fresco finish paint in blood orange (this is now my favourite colour!!) and then 25 from the advent set of numbers was painted with eco-colour paint in silver.  The sentiment is a stamp I found in one of my boxes!!! lol

Pop on over to the Challenge blog and see what some of the other DT members have created - there is a new post each Wednesday and there is a prize for one lucky player!!

There is also a new theme over at Tando Creative too - pop along and see what everyone has been upto...

Hope that everyone is having a good week - we're now 3 weeks into Josh being home - he's been doing his internship every day - now, for a student, having to get up and into town for 9.30am every day is difficult!! rofl - he reckons its HARD in the real world..... mind you, his real world is Monday to Friday - the weekends he reverts back to Student Time!! lolxx

A very good way of using this stencil on your background, to create an original geometric texture! Love the colors and the PA paints you used too Carol, that gives a very lovely ATC ! Coco x
