TCC41 Happy Anniversary
It is time for the new Card Concept #41 "Autumn Neutrals" Photo Inspiration Challenge- love all of the texture for inspiration!
I also decided to incorporate the Splitcoaststampers’ Mix-Ability MIX130 “Crack Me Up” as well as the Free For All F4A271 "Getting Hitched" and the HYCCT1507 Jacqueline's "Trash Cancer" Challenges (T=Texture Paste, R= Roses, A=Acrylic Paint, S= Satin Ribbon, H- Hexagon Punch) into the design.
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.
Hope you can find some time to gather your supplies together and come join in on the fun!!
Apply Gesso® to a piece of retired Designer Series Paper (DSP)- this is one way to use up patterns that you are not too fond of – allow to dry.
Add a few drops of Soft White Acrylic Paint to a Gelli® Arts Printing Plate, brayer over the plate and add a drop of Soft Black Acrylic Paint (using a brayer to gently blend with the white paint).
Use an old credit card to draw lines in the paint (gently so you do not mar the Gelli® Arts Printing Plate). Lay the prepared DSP onto the plate and lift the paper.
Allow the paint to dry, apply Wendy Vecchi® Crackled Texture Paste over the panel, allow this layer to dry, apply Mod Podge® with a foam brush and allow to dry to the touch.
Using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink, stamp the En Francais background sporadically to the background.
Use the Distressing Tool to distress the edges and add the gray crocheted lace along with the gray satin ribbon. Mount the panel onto the 5 ½” x 5 ½” Whisper White card base.
Ink the Tim Holtz® Papillon stamp using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, ink a portion of the Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Chalkboard Vine Background stamp using a Stampin’ Write Going Gray Marker and stamp over the sentiment.
Trim the panel and mount onto Basic Gray cardstock. Apply Gesso® with your finger lightly over the panel and allow to dry.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Spellbinders™ Timeless Rectangle Die to cut out the frame from a piece of Basic Gray cardstock. Mount the sentiment panel onto the die cut frame and adhere the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Stamp the sentiment from the Graphic45® Time to Flourish#2 stamp set using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, create the banner using the Hexagon Punch, mount onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock (creating banner points with the Hexagon Punch as well) and apply Gesso® to the sentiment with your finger.
Mount the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Use the Big Shot™ with the MFT Royal Rose and Mini Rose Dies to cut roses from Whisper White cardstock- roll up the flowers and mount onto the card front with leaves created from Basic Gray cardstock with the Martha Stewart® Leaf Punch. Add a bit of Gesso® to the roses and leaves.
Adhere a few Pearls to the corner to finish off the card.
