    Time for a new color – challenge.

    My inspiration came from this gorgeous Prima Notecard:

    colors.jpg

    And here's the card I made, using these colors.

    60014.jpg

    and here's how I did it:

    1-23.jpg

    I placed the notecard in front of me and selected the papers I wanted to use.

    2-22.jpg

    I cut a base card of 5.3/4 x 5.3/4 of white cardstock. Inked up the edges and then I took some
    gauze (sp) (we use this for keeping the bugs out) and placed it over my card.

    3-22.jpg

    Got some Gesso spread out, over it, using a palette knife.

    4-22.jpg

    it looked something like this.

    5-20.jpg

    close up of the texture it gave me.

    6-21.jpg

    Then I did (randomly) the same on this Prima packaging.

    7-20.jpg

    I distressed and inked up all the edges of my papers.

    8-20.jpg

    and started glueing them down.

    9-20.jpg

    till it looked like this.

    10-16.jpg

    I took out this Prima mask

    11-19.jpg

    placed it over my card, took some Gesso and a palette knife and smeared it over my mask.

    12-18.jpg

    This is how it came out. Not perfect, but okay!

    13-18.jpg

    I placed my flowers – leaves – washi tape – pearls and bird and rubbed all the edges of the distressed papers with platinum stickles. (using my finger)

    60014.jpg

    To finish it of, I swept some gesso over the telegram-card to highlight my sentiment spot. Then inked it up and wrote my sentiment, and I was done.

    Here are some close up's

    ************************************************************************************

    So here are the rules:

    Make a card or tag using:
    * the colors of the Prima note card
    *and do some masking/ stenciling.

    easy peasy right?!

    Can't wait to see what you come up with!!!!

    Have fun!

              Paulien, your card was so inspirational I went and made one yesterday but never took the pic and uploaded it till today! You might get tired of seeing my cards here after a while… I sell vintage style card at a local cafe and had a great week 2 weeks ago, selling 7 of my cards in one week…(this week only one lol!!) I had to restock about 10 cards and have been using some sketches and challenges to get me to try new things and stretch my imagination!!

              I used ink with CW ledger stencil inthe background under the clock and CW clock stencil to gesso the clock on… Thanks for all the wonderful techniques you show here…I am just using the gesso in layouts and cards for the first time this week!

              Here is my entry to this challenge…teal, brown and pink!!
