Cardmaking

No Matter the Weather – I dare you!!

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!
