We continue to celebrate Time Out Challenges' first birthday! To celebrate the occasion, we're sponsored by Uniko and STAMPlorations, who are offering gift certificates to their shops.
We'd love you to play along and create a project that's inspired by this photo:
Joining the TO girls this week is guest designer Mandi of Faith, Hope and Crafts. I hope you'll come check out the TO blog, take a look at some more projects, and play along with us!
I continue my love affair with my Gelli plate with my one layer card. I made this card for someone -- it winged its way to the east coast early last week, when the recipient was still in the US. I'm not sure she received it before she left yesterday! I blame the snow for the mail delivery delay :o( In any case, I took my inspiration from the colors in the photo -- blue, yellow, brown...and then some green (as I imagined those twigs in the vase used to have verdant leaves). I made a negative print using the ARTplorations Happy Flowers stencil. This is the same monoprinting technique I used to make this card here -- I simply brayered different colors of acrylic paints instead of just one. Here's the 90-second video tutorial I made earlier in the week to demo this technique:
Once the print was dry, I stamped the sentiment from Blossom Overture, added a bit of faux texture by partially stamping on the background with Live Love Laugh, and then finished the card by adding the blue border with my Japanese watercolor brush marker.
Linking up my card to these fun challenges:
Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to smile :o)
