A while back my sister asked me to create something just after reading a self help book that I had started. It's helping me get through some things that need dealing with. Anyway, after reading until I could not read anymore I turned to my art.
My wonderful sister just bought me some powders called Bister. You put a little powder on the paper and spritz it with water. I used the red, yellow and blue powders. They have many different colors in them. Becky also gave me a sunburst stencil and some modeling paste. So I added a sunburst in the corner. Then I added some red and yellow ink on top of it. This had to dry so I let it sit all night to dry.
The next morning I added some stamps to the paper. I have had this stamp set for years and never used the little dragonfly before. I thought using it in white would bring some light into my card. This is something I have never done before. Becky said she really liked it so I made her this card to say thank you. She is helping me go outside my comfort zone and create things very different than I have ever done before.
Becky, our cousin Candy and I have started to challenge each other to create projects. They have each issued challenges and then it came to my turn. So this was the challenge that I issued:
Create your own background and use a stencil.
So here is my card for this challenge. I hope you like it.
