HYCCT1531C Hope at the Finish Line
Hi Again Friends!
This card was created for the final Splitcoaststampers’ “Hope You Can Cling To” HYCCT1531C Lydia’s “FinishLine” Challenge (draw a line and have something intersect the line) along with the TLC557 Dangle Art Challenge.
I decided to use my hand drawn dangle lines to intersect with each other and the “H” for Hope. This card was created in less than twenty minutes so I am not too pleased with the dangles (but hopefully whoever receives this will like the card) :-)
Again, I hope you will have time to visit both galleries and check out all of the inspiration from the sample makers and entrants!
Ink the Hope “H” image onto Whisper White cardstock using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and use Pigma Micron™ Pens to draw the dangles.
Color the hearts and other dangle images with Stampin’ Write Markers and add the script stamp in the center with Stāz-On® Jet Black.
***FYI- I tried to add Titanium White Acrylic Paint dots to the main line but they did not look as nice as I would have liked so I just diluted a bit- this looks better IRL but I would skip this step next time or use a different tool to obtain perfect dots :-) ***
Stamp the butterfly onto a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock using Stāz-On® Jet Black, fussy cut and color with the Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker and brush Frost White Shimmer Paint over the wings.
Trim the dangle art panel and mount onto a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Basic Black card front.
Add the butterfly to the card front and draw the antennae with a Pigma Micron™ Pen to finish off the card.
