Happy Friday crafty friends! This week the Daring Cardmakers Challenge is hosted by Svenja and she has chosen tour prompt which is “No matter the weather”, so rain or shine – make a weather-related card!
I decided to use April from Julia McNeill Designs as the focal image of my card. I printed her and coloured her with my trusty spectrum noir tri blend markers. I fussy cut her out and set to creating my background.
For the background I started by smooshing some blue distress oxide inks onto some white card stock. To give a stormy cloud effect in one corder I used a dark blue ink on some bubble wrap and pressed the card into it. I then used a yellow ink through a round stencil to create a sun and then added some paler yellow around plus some rays with white gel pen. I used some stamps from the Tracey Hey Alpacamac set to add in some clouds, hearts and rain drops. The sentiment is also from this stamp set. I added a border with a black fine liner pen and some highlights with white gel pen.
I added the inky background to my card base and then popped April on to complete the card.
I hope you will join us with your weather related cards this week, I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
