The Heavens Declare The Glory of God
I am so excited to announce that I am the Guest Designer for the Retro RubberChallenge Blog #67 “Over the Rainbow” Challenge!
A few weeks ago, my card was chosen as their winner and one of the perks of winning is that you are invited to be a Guest Designer on a future challenge- what a wonderful honor!
I decided to create a colorful simple Mixed Media card using a verse sentiment from the current Our Daily Bread Designs Scripture 9 stamp set along with retired Stampin’ Up! sets- Off the Grid, Stipple Butterfly and Notable Notions. All of these stamps are several years old and I absolutely loved having a chance to play around with them again!
I am also participating in the My Time To Craft #350 “In the Garden” Challenge and the Word Art Wednesday #290-#291 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not already had a chance to visit the above challenge sites, I hope you will do so- they all have wonderful Design Teams as well as gorgeous inspiration in their galleries.
To create this card:
1). Ink the Stipple Butterfly image with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, stamp onto a piece of white cardstock paper, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
2). Using Zig® Clean Real Color Markers along with an AquaPainter™, watercolor the butterfly image and fussy-cut the image. Add a few white highlights to the wings with the Sharpie® Extra Fine White Paint Pen.
3). On a piece of Strathmore™ Bristol Smooth Paper, use the same Zig® Clean Real Color Markers, add a bit of color, spritz with water and dry with the Heat Tool. Splash a bit of water onto the panel, let the water absorb before lifting with a paper towel and heat with the Heat Tool.
4). Trim the panel, ink the retired Off the Grid background stamp with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink over the background as well as the retired Notable Notions script image.
5). Stamp the sentiment from Scripture Collection 9 with archival black ink and heat set with the Heat Tool.
6). Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of black cardstock, trim once more and mount onto the white card base.
7). Mount the fussy cut butterfly to the corner and add a few drops of Nuvo™ Rosewater and Orange Marmalade Jewel Drops to finish off the card.
