TCC39 To Everything There is A Season

Hi Friends!!

Woohoo!!  It is time for The Card Concept Challenges to resume and this card was created for #39 Photo Challenge!  I love the blues and the daisies in this fun photo and used those for my inspiration :-)

I also incorporated the Splitcoaststampers' F4A264 "Baby Pinks and Blues" Challenge (blue only, of course) along with the WT529 "It's About Time Challenge :-)

The Card Concept is a bi-weekly challenge that has an inspiration photo along with a number of design styles that you can choose from to create your card- Clean and Simple, Clean and Graphic, Clean and Layered, Shabby Chic, Freestyle Collage, Classy and Elegant and Mixed Media.  

I hope you can find some time to gather your supplies together and come join in on the fun!! 

To create this card:

Apply Gesso® to a piece of Whisper White cardstock and allow to dry (it dries fairly quickly but you can use the Heat Tool to speed up the drying process).

Start layering color using Gelatos® (Bubblegum and Metallic Blueberry), Ranger® Tim Holtz® Distress Stains- Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire, Broken China, Peacock Feathers and Picket Fence along with water (spritzing as you go), drying with the Heat Tool between layers, adding Wendy Vecchi® Crackled Texture Paste with the Mini Harlequin Stencil (allowing the paste to dry) and adding more Distress Stains to create the background.

Once you achieve the desired effect for the background, apply Frost White Shimmer Paint to portions as well as using a baby wipe with the Mini Punchenella stencil to remove some of the ink in areas.

Trim the panel, mount onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim again and add the clock charm with a brad, the crocheted lace trim along with the 3/8” Midnight Muse Stitched Ribbon.

Mount the panel onto the Midnight Muse card base and use your finger to apply Gesso® over some of the stenciling and edges of the card.

Stamp the daisy image three times using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, color the flowers with Stampin’ Write Markers- Hello Honey and Sahara Sand and “fussy-cut” the daisies.

Stamp the verse from the Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) God’s Timing using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, cut out with the Big Shot™ and the MFT Die-namics™ Blueprints 20 Die (also cutting another die the same size from Midnight Muse cardstock), trim the top of the die to size and adhere the Midnight Muse layer behind the sentiment.

Mount the sentiment layer along with the daisies to the card front using dimensional foam and add the Pearls to the corner of the verse sentiment to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Bloom with Hope (retired hostess), God’s Timing (ODBD)

Ink: Stāz-On® Jet Black, Ranger® Tim Holtz®  Distress Stains- Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire, Broken China, Peacock Feathers, Picket Fence; Gelatos®- Bubblegum, Metallic Blueberry; Frost White Shimmer Paint
