How are you?
Good, I hope.
Warning* The first part of this post is not craft related.*
Before I move on to the card I just wanted to mention that today is September 11th. A day that stands in infamy in our history. Everyone has a story of where they were or weren't that day. Mine's pretty uninteresting but it's not about me. What is interesting is the weeks and months that followed September 11th. People came together. People helped each other. They were filled with compassion and kindness and were the type of people I want to know. Today instead of concentrating on the hate, think about that. There are groups calling for the murder of cops, the murder of white people. It's a frightening time filled with ignorant ideas. All lives matters and to insinuate that any don't is ridiculous. Today please thank God for the things you have and pray for those people who protect it.
Alright, Craft time!
Today starts a new challenge at A Day For Daises and in case you haven't guessed it . . .It's Frame it in!
I used Fairy Mum Portrait from the newest release to create an ornamental fairy for my frame. I colored here with copics and then used my T-square ruler to draw a frame below her. I used warm grays for her wings but didn't have cardstock to match. So I made my own :) I colored a piece of white cardstock with Warm Wool ink (bet you didn't know that wasn't colored cardstock mwhahaha!) and cut a frame. I used my exacto knife to trim out the center of the square underneath the fairy.
To create the portrait for my frame I used another image called Twin Daises. I used the same technique I did in this post. You can see the video on that post or on my Youtube channel.
I printed out my image very lightly on watercolor paper and then used Zig Clean color markers to watercolor with. I actually made this card first. I love the way it came out. :) I adhered the gray frame to my copic colored panel then popped up the whole thing over my watercoloring.
You can join in the challenge over on A Day For Daisies Blog as well as see all the other inspiration the design team has created.
