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!
I got a little behind making the cards for day three, but I rushed a bit this afternoon to finish them up.
I took the Tim Holtz Caged Bird and stamped the word sing all over then I used a feather stencil and used two different colors for it. The Sentiment is from Unity Stamps.
I stamped baby girl on the die cut heart in a very light pink then using a stencil, I molding paste and spray some pink ink on it. The sentiment, “a new baby to love” is Unity Stamps.
For this card, I first arranged my alphabet stamps to spell out “Reach For The Stars” then added more letters in lighter ink then I used a bit of watercolor on the top. The arrow is wood with enamel gloss on top.
Using a stencil I made myself, I typed the words “you are so kind” tinside the stencil area then inked around it. Nice technique – I’m going to use it more often.
This was a scary task. I cut apart the word “Beautiful” and used it for the beginning of the sentence. I cut out some stars with a die and used enamel dots on some and on the star next to the title, I added a rhinestone to make it different from the rest.
I took an online card class in January to learn different techniques using stencils, ink pads, watercolor, gesso, molding paste and regular colored pencils. Here are some of my favorites. To see more of my creations click the link http://www.flickr.com/photos/carmenalicia/
