It’s Wednesday, and this week, I thought I’d make an inspirational card to share with you using Raggedy Ann-ouncement – R044 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Hang In There – D278 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment.
To make my card this week, I started off with a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I created the background on Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock using various stencils, Picket Fence Studio Blender Brushes and Tim Holtz inks which I have listed below. I thought the sun rays reflected a ray of hope for everyone and I hope that we will all be seeing better days soon. Once the background was finished, I used 2 sided tape and mounted it onto the base card.
I stamped the image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured in the main image with Copic markers. I ran the coloured image through my Brother Scan and Cut to create a slim border around it and then went around the edges with Y06 – Yellow and YG25 – Celadon Green to make it blend into the background. Lastly, I popped up the image using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and created a small shadow below Raggedy Ann.
