The Heavens Declare The Glory of God

Hi Friends!!

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!

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.

 Stamp Sets: Scripture Collection 9 (Our Daily Bread Designs); Stipple Butterfly, Off the Grid, Notable Notions (all retired Stampin’ Up!)

Ink/Mediums: Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, Zig® Clean Color Real Brush Markers- Yellow, Orange, Blue, Pink;  Nuvo™ Jewel Drops- Rosewater, Orange Marmalade; Sharpie® Extra Fine White Paint Pen

Paper: Bristol Smooth, Basic Black, Whisper White

Accessories:  AquaPainter™, Heat Tool

Thanks again for visiting- I hope you will find some time to pull out some of your older stamps and join us at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog! Hugs and please stop by again soon!

Julie, I'm so glad that you accepted the offer of being guest designer for us this week. I do think that I actually stopped breathing for a second when I saw this glorious card with its vibrant colours. The butterfly is a stunner too. Thank you for sharing how you created this card. I didn't know how you'd got your colours to sing out so much - I think I will have to investigate these markers!
