What's the Size of Your Art?

Art can come in many different sizes from Murals on the side of a building, an artist painted canvas to cards and even Inchies. This weeks challenge at Innovative Stamp Creations is to create different sizes of your art! Specifically an ATC, Moo, and an Inchie using the same technique, color palette and focal stamp. I was excited to do this challenge since it was an excuse to make my very first ATC and Inchie.

What’s the Size of Your Art:



Inchie (this little bugger just did not want to get photographed!):

ATC -> 2.5 x 3.5 inches
Moo -> 1 1/8 x 2 ¾ inches
Inchie -> 1 x 1 inches

The techniques that I used were Resist and stamping on acetate. The brick gate on the ATC and Moo were creating using plain grungeboard and then just a grey marker to add some depth at the bottom of the brick. The “pulls’ on the gates are silver beads.

Tip - easiest way to stamp on acetate is to ink up your stamp and lay it image up on your table and place the acetate on the image and rub with your hand… Careful not to more the acetate!

Challenge Specifics: ISCC11 Use same technique, color palette and main focal image on an ATC, Moo and Inchie (see sizes above). There's more, a random name will be chosen if you create a set with ISC stamps only! The winner will receive a SPECIAL prize - $25.00 shopping spree at ISC!

Deadline to post your link in the comments section of the ICS blog is Sunday August 24!

Come on - show us the size of your art!

Thanks for the visit!
