Design Team Make for "Love To Craft Challenge Blog" #36 July 2019
Can you believe we're now in July? I have no idea where this year has gone to.
As it's the first of the month, it is time for a new "Anything Goes" challenge on the "Love To Craft Challenge Blog". This is the card I have made as a member of the Design Team. If you have a spare moment, please do pop over and take a look at the fab makes by my fellow colleagues.
Here's a photo of the main items I used to make this card.
I started this card by tearing a page out of an old book and sticking a panel to the middle of the card blank.
I made a water wash with a Distress Oxide Ink in a pale green shade called "Cracked Pistachio" and then brushed it across the text section.
Using a stamp from a Stampers Anonymous set, I stamped the cirles horizontally across the middle of the card using Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" shade of ink.
Using the same ink, I also stamped some vertical lines using a Stampin' Up stamp set called "Gorgeous Grunge".
Using diluted white Gesso, using a brush, I painted around the edges of the torn page and out to the edges of the card. I deliberately went over the edges of the torn paper so that the Gesso helped to stick any stray raised pieces that had not stuck previously.
Once this was dry, I used a foam blending tool to add a subtle shade of pale pink to the background using a Distress Oxide in the shade of "Spun Sugar". I then stamped more of the circles to create an image from edge to edge of the card.
I also stamped some hexagon images using Versafine Clair "Charming Pink" ink.
On a plain piece of card, I stamped two butterfly (Stampers Anonymous "Perspective" stamp set) images, again using the Versafine Clair "Charming Pink" ink. I cut one out and stuck it onto the card. With the second one, I only cut the upper wings out. I used a small blob of "Silicon Glue" to adhere these. This gave the upper wings a more 3D look.
Finally, I added the "Celebrate" sentiment using a stamp from a Stampin' Up set called "Endless Birthday Wishes". I added some sticky backed pearls to add a little more interest.
