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!
