TCC109 Let Us Love

Hi Friends!

Isn’t this inspiration photo bright and cheerful?  

I love the colors (especially the hot pink) and since I do not own any pineapple or tropical "cute-sy" type stamps, I decided to use the colors to create a "simple" Mixed Media card (the main panel is just one layer, so to me, that is simple) :-)  

Since this card is "simple", I will be linking to the As You See It #194 “Simple is As Simple Does”Challenge and am also participating with the Word Art Wednesday #374-#375 “Anything Goes” Challenge.

As I mentioned above, the main panel is just one layer and to me, that is simple,  A bit of heat embossing, watercoloring, masking and the card was done!  Without dimension is "simple" to me :-)

If you have not had a chance to visit us at The Card Concept or the other challenge sites yet, I hope you will find time to do so- fabulous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

1). De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool.   Using Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, stamp the floral image from Wild Rose and the sentiment from God Verses 2, both from Divinity Designs formerly Our Daily Bread Designs)  onto the prepared panel, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.  Once the embossing has cooled, watercolor the flowers using water-based markers and watercolor pencils (see colors that I used below in the card recipe).

2). Create a mask for the flowers by stamping the image again onto a piece of sticky note paper (or scrap paper).  Fussy-cut the image from the sticky note paper and cover the stamped image on the panel.

3). Ink the retired Chalkboard Word Collage (Divinity Designs) background stamp with Tim Holtz® Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and stamp over the entire panel.  Spritz lightly with water, tamp with a dry paper towel and gently wipe off any excess ink from the stamped images.  Heat set the background lightly with a heat tool.

4). Die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die, mount onto a piece of black cardstock, trim the black cardstock and mount onto the white card base.

5).  Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the flower petals to finish off the card.

Oh, Julie, these are such vibrant colours! So beautifully created! Simple can mean so many different things and one layer is certainly one of them. Thanks for joining us for As You See It Challenge this week.

Love the beautiful coloring and the sentiment. So blessed that you joined our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday and would like to invite you again to link with us at the new challenge that started today. Leaving you with God's Word in 1 John 2:15-17 which says, "Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever." Have a blessed and wonderful week.

The depth you've created with your colouring is fabulous - it looks so much more than a single layer! The background is lovely too. Thank you for sharing your tips and tricks on how to do it. Thank you also for joining us again at As You See It challenge.
