Since I didn’t have to make a project for this week’s Life Book 2016, I spent my time making cards for a couple of challenges. I hope you read my previous post about the projects I created for Club Scrap.
This week’s photo is open to interpretation as you can see by the image. I’ve seen a few of the cards people have made for this challenge and many involve rain drops.
I chose to concentrate on the colors instead of the raindrops.
I went to Hobby Lobby and found a Spellbinders Stained Glass die cut on clearance. I think this was an excellent purchase and will make great use of it.
I used the You do This stamp which has several words you can insert in the banner. I chose “amaze.” I then cut out the letters and the banner individually so the “stained glass” wouldn’t be obscured. I used silver cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot.
I die cut another piece using white cardstock and used it as a mask, then used inks, colored pencils, and markers to add the colors on the photo.
Here’s a close-up
I really enjoyed making this card although had to take my time to color each segment of the “stained glass” and fuzzy-cut each letter.
I hope you enjoyed your visit here, and until next time,
make some art!
