TTCRD July-August 2018 Sneak Peek!

Wednesday, March 23, 2016

(Update: I've entered this over at Deep Ocean Challenge Blog as of 1-3-2017, as their theme is Most Favorite Project of 2016)

It's time for another challenge over at Crafty Gals Corner!

Challenge #64 ~ Easter or Spring (3/23)

Our sponsors this week are:

Robyn's Fetish
Prize: 3 Digital Images

Sami Stamps
Prize: $12 Gift Certificate

Miss Daisy Stamps
Prize: 5 Digital Images

For my image, I chose the Inspirational Cross 1 by Miss Daisy Stamps

I wanted this card to be special, so I decided that I'd make a "stain glass" window for my cross to lay on. I started by using Acetate paper I had in my stash. I made a grid onto the acetate, and colored in the water soluable oil pastels onto the back of the grid, randomly adding various colors. I then took a baby wipe and gently swiped the colors downward, so the colors would blend and become more "glass stain-like". I outlined the grid with a black jounaling pen. I adhered another piece of acetate onto the back of that window to keep it from smearing. I used a template to cut out the oval shape in Paper Temptress Heavenly White #80 cardstock, and outlined that with black also. I layered it on top of paper I had in my stash. 

The cross was cut from paper also from Paper Temptress: Glossy Yellow and Cryogen Iridescent White.  I used Diamond Glass Glitter and the butterflies from Reneabouquets. I really had a great time making this card. The acetate really worked for my window. :-D

I hope you join in the challenge! There's a new one every week!
