Welcome to my creative space!
Today I'm sharing my DT inspiration for the Scrap & Craft May Challenge. Mother's day is just around the corner, and I've created this sweet card for my beautiful mom.
In this challenge you need to use any three chipboard pieces in your project. You can create any project you want: layout, card, canvas, art journal page or OTP project.
You need to use at least one product from the Scrap & Craft store
and link that product to the Scrap and craft store.
You can find all the challenge details HERE on the Scrap & Craft Blog.
Tips and Techniques
Texture is added to the background with light molding paste using Art Anthology's Lotus stencil, then spritzed with blue and purple color mist to highlight the texture. When dry, I used a script stamp randomly across the background and then spattered with white drawing ink. More texture is added around the cluster using prills and chunky glass glitter. I just had to add a little bling with a few clear rhinestones scattered near the floral cluster.
I stamped out the leafy Branch
stamp onto watercolor paper and used Zig Real Brush Markers for a vibrant watercolor effect. The leaves were then fussy cut to tuck in around the cluster.
I used 4 pieces of chipboard all together. This script beauty piece from Michaels is heat embossed with shabby white embossing enamel. The final piece is the center circle from the Crafty Molly ~ Zahia frame
. It is brushed with randomly with metallic paint coordinating with the background and used as a base for the beauty sentiment.
A metal butterfly that I brushed with white gesso, Prima Sparks paint, and Prima Finnabair art wax.
I hope you'll grab your Scrap & Craft supplies to join us for the May challenge.
