Before I start my post today I want to take a moment to say that my heart really goes out to those in Oklahoma and surrounding areas that have been hit so hard this season with tornados. I am continuing to pray for all of you in the paths of the storms.
I worked on another 4x6 card for my 7 Gypsies tray and also wanted to play in a couple challenges...
Stampotique Designers Challenge - This week they are challenging us to use something Transparent, I love this theme! I really had to think outside the box here
Frilly and Funky - Well, I think I read this challenge wrong, I thought it was just "Window" but when I re-read it, I think I'm supposed to add a destination... uh-oh I hope my project counts but if not, I'm sharing it anyway heehee!!
For starters here, I used another one of my gelli plate backgrounds. I made this a few weeks ago and have been itching to use it.
It's a transfer onto black lined paper and I just love how it came out, I cut it down to 4x6 size
I also decided that I wanted to use Ranger's 2x2 Memory Frames
These work great with the memory glass but I'm out so i just cut a piece of thick plastic into the right size
I used Tim Holtz Remnant Rubs (love these) and put several words onto the plastic square
I am using my Stampotique Prom Queen girl, By Daniel Torrent and Jill Penney for this project so I used my wood mount to place the words exactly where I wanted them onto the plastic.
I wanted the words to stand out a bit so I painted behind them with a fine line paintbrush and white paint
I stamped my Prom Queen onto white paper and colored her with Copic Markers
I wanted her to stand out a bit more onto the background so I went around her with white gelli pen and used Faber Castell Oil Pastel in black to create a "hue"
I then glued her onto my background. The black hue helps her to stand out
I then wrote my words onto white card stock and edged each one with fired brick distress ink
I cut out some butterflies with red card stock and a Sizzix Embosslit
Once everything was done, I put it all together and added some ribbon.
I really like the way this turned out. I like the idea of seeing through the window into the soul. Thanks for stopping by..
Until next time.... cheers!
