Rubbernecker Challenge #7 - chalk lines




I'm going through a very rough time right now, and I wanted to try to stamp something to get my mind off things. Can't say it worked at all, but at least I got to finish the Rubbernecker challenge. This challenge is to look at the inspiration piece and create something from it.

I ended up doing a chalk lines background (a new technique from the Technique Junkies newsletter) which sort of emulates the inspiration piece. I picked out the colors - blue, green, pink, and purple - from the inspiration piece and tried to copy the grid pattern you see there. The sentiment is from Rubbernecker, and the little silver charm says "imagine" on the front.
