The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge Theme - Create Your Own Background


The Sisterhood of Crafters challenge theme is "Create Your Own Background."

For my card I used the following to create a slimline card:

Crumb Cake Cardstock
VersaFine Clair Falling Leaves Ink
Unity Stamp Company image and sentiment from the July 2018 KOM Stand Tall
Frantic Stamper Double Fishtail Label Die
Bianyo Markers
After coloring the images I applied the Falling Leaves ink to a scrap piece of corrugated cardstock and "stamped" the inked lines onto the background; used a blending sponge to ink the edges of the layering panel.  White gel pen used for the centers of the berry vines.

We hope you'll share your cards/projects with us at The Sisterhood of Crafters challenge using the theme to create your own background.

The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - Use embossing folder and/or Dies


The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge is to use Embossing Folder and/or Dies.
For my card I used the Tim Holtz 3D Texture Roses Embossing Folder.
I used 100% cotton watercolor paper for the embossed image.  Before embossing I used Distress Oxide Black Soot to color one side of the EF which gave the black background a "grunge look" leaving the raised image in white.  I then used DOX Campfire, Peeled Paint, and Picked Raspberry inks to watercolor the raised images using an aqua brush.  When dry, I adhered the TH quote quip and transparent butterfly wings to the panel.  I cut a narrow strip from the colored panel and adhered the panel to a layer of copper cardstock before adhereing to the cardbase.

We hope you'll share your embossed and/or cards using dies with us at The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge.
