Welcome back everyone we hope you had a great weekend. It’s time for a new Bi- Weekly Challenge and this week it’s all about sending Encouragement.
Create a Card to send someone a little “Encouragement” using any brand of products and Markers or Water-coloring mediums that we carry in the store. You may play along with other challenges, but excessive challenge pile-ons (more than 10) will result in disqualification for “The Prize”.
One entry will be chosen at random to receive our prize. Three additional entries will be chosen for the ”Top 3″ based on their creative use of the Challenge theme. The prize winner and top three can all proudly post their brag buttons on their blogs for the world to see! The Linky will close on Sunday, September 4th at 12 pm CST. The winner will have TWO weeks to claim their prize. *International winners will be responsible for shipping costs if they choose to claim their prize*
Check out what Clare has created below for our Encouragement Challenge. We can’t wait to see what you create!
Hello there! Clare here today, with a fun, sparkly encouragement card for this weeks challenge!
For today’s card, I started out by taking the adorable Mama Elephant Unicorns and Rainbows stamp set and heat embossing it with some glittery embossing powder. I then colored the unicorn in with my trusty ZIG’s, using Light Gray and Gray for the hair and hooves, Pale Pink for the wings, and Ochre for the horn. The reason the colors are so pale here is that I blended them out a lot with some water and a brush.
I then die cut my little horsey out, and laid it aside to create the starry setting.
For the starry scene, I first stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts Let Love Grow in white on some navy cardstock, then the little diamonds from the Mama Elephant stamp set in pearl. I added some gems, and then adhered my unicorn.
To finish the card off, I embossed two strips of paper in the same glittery embossing powder at the unicorn, then adhere them to a card base, and topped that off with my stamped and embellished navy panel.
Thanks so much for stopping in today and God bless!
