Color Blocking

Hello blogland friends. Today I just have a short post for you as we have had a death in the family and so the next two weeks will prove to be quite different to expected. I also wish to take this opportunity to thank you so much for still visiting my blog when I have not had the ability to return the favor in the last weeks. I will resume my visits again as soon as possible and I look forward to that.

My project today is for the current challenge in the Share Handmade Kindness Facebook group. One of Jennifer McQuire's technique videos is the source of inspiration each month for the challenge and this month it is color blocking. I wanted a dainty background and do not have a background stamp like I wanted, so I decided to try "stamping" with an embossing folder. It took two attempts, but I was happy with the second outcome.

I stamped with Versamark ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. I then cut the card panel into eight pieces and then inked each one with a different color Distress Oxide ink. I put the pieces back to together again and mounted the panel onto a white cardbase with craft foam behind it. The card was complete with a bold sentiment in the middle.

  1. This is such a bright and cheerful card. I meant to join the crafty chefs challenge, but alas, I am homeschooling once again. It was my goal to never home school again. So much for goals. My grandson was going to a Christian school. I am continuing his curriculum from there. I was not brought up learning a whole lot about religion. Now I have to teach it. Wow, this is going to be difficult. I promised my daughter I would not discuss my thoughts with him. The very first thing I looked at I just thought, oh wow! I need to do some research on why they are teaching him some things. Life's getting interesting.

  2. Beautiful card and great technique.Sorry to hear about the family death my condolences to all
