TCC54 Love the Lord Your God
It is time for The Card Concept #54 Photo Inspiration Challenge and I was inspired by the beautiful purple flowers, the soft greens and blues in the inspiration photo for my Mixed Media card.
I actually designed two cards for this inspiration photo challenge- I could not decide which one to use for the Design Team ....I will share the one featured for the Design Team in this post and will share the second one in a future post :-)
Just a reminder that 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 have also linked this card to the Splitcoastampers' CC578 Color Challenge along with the Mix-Ability MIX169 "Earth Day" Challenge.
I hope you have a chance to visit us at The Card Concept and check out the rest of our Design Team samples as well as the Splitcoaststampers challenge sites- fabulous inspiration from all!!
Using a clear envelope or protector sheet, cut open one side and the bottom to create a “book”, pat the Bermuda Bay and Old Olive Classic Ink pad onto the acetate, spritz with water, close the envelope and “smoosh the ink”, open the envelope and lay a piece of Whisper White cardstock into the ink, lift and continue to press into the ink until you are pleased with the background.
De-static the panel with the Embossing Buddy®, ink the branch image from Choose Happiness with Versamark™ Ink, stamp onto the panel, re-ink and stamp two additional times, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Black Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
Once the embossing cools, color the leaves with the Stampin’ Write Old Olive Marker.
De-static the background panel again with the Embossing Buddy®, ink the Verse sentiment from the Scripture Collection 9 (Our Daily Bread Designs) with Versamark™ Ink, align and stamp onto the panel, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Black Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
Using a paint brush with diluted Black Gesso® to add splatters.
Trim the background panel and mount onto a piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Whisper White card base.
De-static a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Embossing Buddy®, ink the flower image from Choose Happiness and stamp three of the images onto the panel, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Black Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
Once the embossed flowers are cooled, use an AquaPainter™ with Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink to color the flowers and add the shadows with the Elegant Eggplant Stampin’ Write Marker.
Fussy cut the flowers, add white highlights to the center with the Faber-Castell® White Pitt Pen Marker and mount onto the card front to finish off the card.
