Variations Week: Aletha’s View

Hi all! This week the SPS Design Team gets to work with an image from Karen Middleton’s collection. Karen’s images can be found in rubber and digi format, whichever is your favorite. We each were given “An Apple a Day.” Wait until you see the variety of little pieces of art using this one image.

I colored with my Copics and then die-cut with Spellbinder’s Label Ten.

Copics used:
YG91, 93, 95, 97, 99
R20, 21, 24, 27, 29, 81, 83, 85, 89
E000, 11, 21, 25, 27, 29, 33, 41, 42, 43, 44, 47, 49
YR20, 21

Frantage was added to the die-cuts. I really like the way it looks on other artist’s projects, but not on mine. I guess that I really need to practice.

Have you checked out our One Sweet Challenge? The theme is to use your favorite technique. For your information, Sweet Pea Stamps will be closed until August 25. Digis orders can be place during the time of closing; no rubber stamp orders will be completed.

Thanks for stopping by. Check back every day this week for some amazing inspiration from the SPS Design Team.

  1. Aletha, this is gorgeous. I love the bright and cheery colours you have used. I know what you mean about the Frantage. I've tended to still to the embossing powder as when I use other things it either doesn't stick or looks a mess!!! Take care, Kym xxx

  2. This is so beautiful. I love your colors you art always brings my heart joy
