HYCCT1513 Hope For Tomorrow
Hi Again Friends!!
I decided to create a card this evening for the Splitcoaststampers Hope You Can Cling To HYCCT1513 Misti’s “Show Me Your Scars” Challenge (distress/tear one edge or side –I did a few sides since some survivors have many scars).
I also incorporated the Mojo419 Sketch Challenge (modified a bit) along with the Crafts4EternityR247 “Tick Tock” Challenge and Splitcoaststampers’ TLC555 “Watercolor Powders” Challenge (see details with a great tutorial video from Dina here and gallery here).
Again, I hope you will have a chance to visit the above galleries and possibly take some time to create a card and join in on the fun!!
To create this card:
De-static a piece of watercolor paper with the Embossing Buddy®, ink the sentiment and clock image from the retired Stampin’ Up! Sense of Time stamp set using Versamark™ and stamp onto the piece of prepared watercolor paper.
Spritz the paper with water and sprinkle the Brusho® Crystal Colours into the wet area, spritzing again and allowing the colors to merge. FYI- I started with Yellow, Brilliant Red, dried with the Heat Tool and blotted with a paper towel, added more water, dropped Turquoise and Purple and repeated the above steps until I was satisfied with the background.
Fussy-cut around the clock and trim the sentiment panel, distress the edges of the sentiment panel and use the Crimper Tool to add more texture on the top and bottom of the panel.
Tear a scrap piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock (this one was previously embossed with the retired Finial Press Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder) and crimp with the Crimper Tool.
Use the Big Shot™ with the retired Pretty Print Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock, trim and mount onto the Bermuda Bay card base.
Add the torn/crimped Elegant Eggplant layer along with the sentiment directly to the card front and mount the clock using Stampin ‘ Dimensionals®.
Add the Pearls to the center of the clock hands as well as the corners of the sentiment panel to finish off the card.
