I have a super quick post today, but quite a few pictures, since I am sitting my grandson. As a three month old, he will only occupy himself for so long, LOL.
I made this card for 7 challenges! WOW, that is truly a record for me. With each photo I will post which challenge that aspect of the card is for.
Paper Tole is making the same image 2 or more times, cutting out sections from all but one layer. Then using the sections you cut to POP over the top layer. Clear??? For example the butterfly on the right is 3 layers. The bottom layer is the complete butterfly. The second layer is the right wings only adhered with demensionals. The third layer is the top right wing only, also adhered with dimensionals.
I hope that makes sense to you. Paper Tole was one of my favorite techniques before I new the name for it. The cutting and coloring is quite relaxing for me. Well...that is if my doxie doesn't start barking out to the blue and I end up cutting off something I did not plan to!
This image was a difficult one for me to work with. It is from the retired Stampin' Up set called The Gifts Of Spring. It is detailed enough so that the bunnies were hard to cut out. If you have never made a paper tole before, it would be best to use a simpler image, such as the ones I used here, to practice.
The sponsor for this challenge is a new stamp store called 2 Cute Rubber Stamps. As the name suggests, she carries rubber stamps as well as digitals. I so much wanted to use one of the cutest images of hers called Sting Ray Kids since I already own it. I just was not sure if a sting ray would be considered an animal.
Easter. The sight of hibernating animals coming out of their dens reminds me of the new life Christ gave us as he rose from the grave Easter morning.
The Splitcoast Stampers Challenge for Monday (TLC266), which is try a new technique, was called Inside Out. The challenge was to decorate the inside also.
If you have been following my blog, you will know that this is something I started to do recently. What perfect timing for this challenge.
Pastels. I used purple and pink pastels for this card.
I also wanted to show you that I stamped the image as a watermark where the writing would go.
The complete front of the card was made using the sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges for their C4C30 challenge.
You can see the sketch by following the link above.
