Helen's blog, you're on the right track, if not, I've included the blog roll so you can just jump right in!
This time, I've created with a gorgeous set from the Color By Faith collection called Salt and Light. It is a beautiful set with sentiments from John and Matthew and some amazing coordinating images. I have so many plans for this set so you'll have to stop back again to check out more creations.
To make this card, I started out by creating a yummy background using a Kaleidacolor pad (Fruitcake). I love the blend of colors it creates. How did I do the background? Well, it was quite simple. I first stamped the Kaleidacolor pad onto a stamp block then spritzed it with water. After that, I transferred the image onto my Gelli Plate and lifted a few prints from it. I got about six or seven background prints from one inking! So yummy. The ink was dried immediately so I was able to ink up the world image and using my Misti, I stamped the image twice onto the colored panel.
After that, I cut the panel to the size I liked, added some gold paint splatter and then moved on to the image. Since the lightbulb already had a sentiment on it, I opted to just color the lightbulb with watercolor pencils and cover it with Glossy Accents.
The next step was to add a bit of tissue paper to the edge, a strip of hot pink cardstock to the opposite edge, some machine stitching, and re-applied the printed strip underneath. I also popped the panel up on foam squares to give a little more dimension.
Before I called it quits on this card, I applied a few droplets of glaze onto the colored panel and added some golden bling.
I hope you enjoyed this creation. I loved making it and can't wait to share more projects using the background papers that remain. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!
