A Pop Art Scene

Hi crafters. Sometimes an accident is the best thing in making a card.
I was painting tear-off calendar pages to use in collage, and I decided to stamp the Judikins wood block 2499G stamp on it. I was stamping with Staz On which was a bit dry. When I lifted the stamp, some paper and paint tore off the top. I decided this could be an opportunity, so I stamped again on top. I thought the acrylic paint would resist water based media, so I rubbed Mustard Seed Distress Stain on the bare patches. The background is the waste from a Kaisercraft Mixed Media Circles diecut which I had glued down onto white paper. I coloured the white paper with Mustard Seed and Picked Raspberry stains. I needed something else for my portrait and I thought why not green hair? Green is the theme at Simon says Stamp this week. The hair was cut from green cardstock stamped with the Woodcut Swirls Deep Red stamp. I cut into the waves and glued the face in there. I found a deep pink cardbase and rubbed the same metallic pink paint around the edge. I layered the background on a black matt and the face on green foam. It became Pop Art looking as it evolved, which I like. I found a Snarky Small Talk sticker that seemed to work. On the inside I used a stamp which says : Time to drink champagne and dance on the table.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Simon says Stamp Monday challenge: Use something green.

Simon says Stamp Wednesday challenge: A bit O’ green.
Happy crafting,

Christine
