Paper Crafts Crew #245 – Concord and 9th Written in the Stars
Welcome back to the Paper Crafts Crew Challenge! This week we have a tic-tac-toe challenge:
I decided to do the top row for my card. I grabbed a set I had gotten quite a ways back for this card. I decided to use multiple colors of ink for my bright colors, some Doodlebug Sprinkles for my enamel embellishments as well as the sparkle/bling in combination with my trusty Sakura Stardust pen. Lookie:
GOJUS! Even though I used bright colors, I decided this would make a great Missing You card.
I did a blended background with Tumbled Glass distress ink but the rest of the ink colors were from Simon Says Stamp. I both stamped clouds using the stamp from the set as well as used these nifty Chevron Clouds dies I picked up from Simon Says Stamp when they had a sale. I had to shim the die sandwich up and use the #110 weight cardstock to get the chevrons to emboss into the card stock, but I think the texture adds a lot.
I love how the Doodlebug Sprinkles look like rain drops!
To add to the rainy feel, I used a ruler and my Sakura Stardust pen to create rain falling from one of the clouds.
I love how it turned out!
