CPC July Crossover Event

Hi, everyone!  Happy Father's Day to those who are celebrating it today.  It's time for mid-month reveal at Child's Play Challenges, and this challenge is a special crossover event.


We have a sketch from our crossover partner, Scrap Our Stash.


And the Child's Play image prompt (above) is...tie-dye!  There are lots of ways to interpret this prompt, and here is what I came up with:

Supplies: red cardstock from Wausau Paper; all other cardstock from Bazzill; patterned paper from Bella Blvd; watercolor paints from Angora; ink from Autumn Leaves/Stampology; alphabet stickers, button, & rub ons from October Afternoon; rhinestones from Dee's Place; shimmer paint from Smooch; Candi dots from Craftwork; thread from DMC; black pen from Foray; purple pen from Zig; gifted tape.

I used a watercolor technique to mimic the look of tie-dyed rings on my page background.  I also used watercolor paint to interpret some parts of the sketch.  Let me show you a few detail shots.

You can see part of a watercolor "tie-dyed" ring in the corner of the page.

I added a whole rainbow of rhinestones.  :)

I think you can see that I had a lot of fun with this one.  If you feel inspired by this sketch and photo inspo, you can make a page and link it up to Child's Play.  And, if you follow the additional criteria from the Scrap Our Stash blog, you can link up there as well.  Happy crafting!

Nice tie dye effect. It looks like there are two tie dyes with the circle and the rows of rainbow colors. You did a super job with this challenge.
