The challenge for April was coloring. This could be watercolor, pencil crayon, markers, copics, acrylic, wax crayons and I've likely missed a few. Choose your favorite or challenge yourself with one you've had a hard time using and go for it! If you make a card let me a comment with a link to your card. I would love to see what you have made.
Here's my card for April. I started with coloring some chip board coasters with Tim Holtz Distress Stain. See my previous posts for a sample. I chose the vintage colors for this card. I cut the letters from the Aged Mahogany chip board with my Sizzix Shadow Box Alphabet. I cut the SU! Apothecary die cut from Echo Park Paper - Tree Skirt from the Season's Greetings Collection by Lori Whitlock. I rubbed the edges of the diecut with the distress stain dauber. I glued the JOY letters to the Apothecary die cut with quick drying adhesive. I created my background layer with a piece of white card stock aged with the TH Antique Linen distress stain. I cut it down to leave a border. I found a piece of gross grain ribbon to match the letters and mounted it onto the back ground and taped the ends to the back. The background is adhered to a piece of coordinating green card stock. I glued the JOY letters to the Apothecary diecut with quick drying adhesive. The label diecut is adhered over the ribbon to the background with 3D foam tape.
