Artistic Outpost Product Focus

Morning all, time for our monthly PRODUCT FOCUS with Artistic Outpost.
This month we are focusing on imagery from the VERSES/GREETINGS category. I created a background using a Spin Art machine, a children's toy (a technique inspired by the fabulous Hermine who used this children's toy a few weeks back), a simple and inexpensive piece of kit that makes fabulous backgrounds.
I stamped the two children from the Think and Wonder stamp set and added touches of colour with Distress Markers.
I combined the focal image with the fabulous sentiment from the Chalkboard Wisdom stamp set, perfect when combined with the focal image.
I also added the focal image to the inside of the card along with a few delicate paint splatters.

My fellow team members also have some artwork to inspire you further:-

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Wonderful Spin Art background (I haven't used one of those since a day at the carnival MANY years ago where they had a spin art booth!) love the split sentiment on this!

How fantastic to use a Spin Art toy to make your fabulous background, it really does look amazing! The children are from my most favourite AO set and they look wonderful against the background. Love this! Hugs, Anne xx

Tracy, what a fabulous card, your words and images work perfectly together and what an great idea to use the spirograph for the background, will have to go and scope out second hand shops to see if I can find an old one!
