Pixelated Roses

As a member of DTs, I'm often checking out posts and sometimes I'm really impressed, even impressed enough to have a go at a technique myself. One such occasion happened a couple of weeks ago as I was skimming through the entries for STAMPlorations 5th birthday challenge. One card stood out for me in the gallery and I had to go check it out, even though it wasn't my turn to comment. It was this super card here.
I loved the way the image was coloured using a grid, just like when you zoom in on a printed image from a magazine or newspaper, it's called pixelating. I don't own a  grid stamp but I did have a ruler and pencil so gridded up my own on a panel of card then stamped my roses over the top.


The flowers are from Altenew's Amazing You set, coloured using my Zig pens. At first I wasn't sure if it had worked but I left it alone for a couple of days and when I came back to it I was happier but perhaps felt that the grid was a little too large. The sentiment is a SSS die cut courtesy of my bloggy friend Sarah, of Sazzle Dazzle and a strip stamped and embossed in white on black from Altenew's Wishing You.
I've since found an MFT background stamp and had another try, but that's for sharing later later!

So off I go to join in!

  8. I think a lot of us were impressed with Pooja's card, Julie, and kudos to you for trying the technique especially since you drew the grid yourself. The way even the flower is pixelated is amazing. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Just Us Girls.
