I like combining challenges with completely different tasks.
I was creating this card with two challenges in mind. First one is – Happy Little Stampers CASE the Designer August challenge. I’ve been thinking about it for a while and wanted to use my HLS Whimsical Friends stamp set somehow…
And then I came across The Paper Players Theme Challenge #307 – “You light up my life”. And it was a really light-bulb moment, as there is sun in my stamp set.
I will be also linking to Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #206 – “Anything goes”.
This is my first attempt to case the designer. This month the task at Happy Little Stampers is to case a beautiful card by Gloria Lee:
I created a heart-shaped mask out of paper using my Neat & Tangled die ‘Heart of Gold’ as a template.
Then I masked white area in the middle and stamped the sun from HLS Whimsical Friends stamp set around it.
Next step was to stamp a sentiment and a birdie from the same set in the middle.
I colored my card with watercolor pencils and finished it with some jewels.
This week’s task at The Paper Players is to include a source of light into project.
So using repeated stamping of the sun fits here just right.
I ‘framed’ my card with sunny orange designer paper and applied it to white card base.
