Education, Quotation Card no. #2 (CRAFT-alnica #193, August GDT)

Hi everyone! :o)

I was delighted to be asked to be a Guest Designer at CRAFT-alnica, Slovenian challenge blog, for month of AugustTwo weeks ago I shared my first GDT project and today I'm sharing my second project as GDT at CRAFT-alnica.

The challenge for this fortnight is #193 - Okvir / Frame. Use a frame on your project, make or decorate a frame.

I love hand drawn frames, so I decided to go with a hand drawn frameAnd this is my take on the challenge: Education, Quotation Card.

This is a decoration magnet (it has a magnetic sheet on the back). I made it for myself (actually for a refrigerator, as magnets can't stick on me LOL).

To make this one, I was inspired with a Quotation Card I made last year (find it here). I quoted one of my favorite philosophers, Jiddu Krishnamurti. :o)

How I made my quotation card/magnet...

I cut a white watercolor paper panel and typed quotation on a typewriter and drew line frame with superfine permanent marker (0.4 mm).

Images are layered. I stamped pile of books from Jane's Doodles 'Read All About It' stamp set  directly on the panel and once more on a piece of watercolor paper. Then I colored books in watercolor technique using Distress Inks.

I colored a background in watercolor technique using Distress Ink Blueprint Sketch (DIBS). I added several layers of color and dried them between. When I was satisfied with the color, I splattered whole panel with water and DIBS.

After drying, I fussy cut colored books, colored edges with a black marker and glued them over stamped images on the panel. I added white highlights on books and the panel was finished.

The watercolor paper I used was thick and you could kind of see black color of the magnetic sheet through it. To solve this "problem", I cut a white cardstock base, same size as the watercolor paper, and glued colored panel on it. At the end I glued whole card on the magnetic sheet and my quotation card /magnet was finished.

Dimensions:  88 mm x 126 mm (3 1/2" x 5")

  • Jane's Doodles 'Read All About It' Stamp Set

You Are Magical Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this CAS (clean and simple), shaker, You Are Magical Card.

I made this card for my niece Tea who's 7th birthday is tomorrow. 

This shaker card was so easy to create. I used stamps from an ADORABLE Jane's Doodles 'Magical' stamp set. LOVE!!! :o)

I was inspired with colors from a photo below shared on Addicted to Stamps and More blog for the challenge #255 - Photo inspiration. :o)

I stamped a dragon on a thick watercolor paper and colored it in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the dragon and colored edges with black marker. As a finishing touch I added white highlights and dots on the dragon and set it aside.

I mixed various sequins to get my own mix. :o)

Then I worked on shaker construction. 

I cut a white carstock panel, a bit smaller than a card base, and cut out circle window on it. I stamped a sentiment below the window and glued a piece of acetate on the back of the panel to close the window. I glued foam sheet square with a circle window on it on the back of the panel, filled the window with shaker mix and glued it on the card base.

Lastly, I glued 3-D foams on the dragon and placed it on the card. To make the card sturdier, I glued a white cardstock paper panel inside the card. :o)
