Another Monday has arrived and with it, another Craft Your Passion challenge. This one has a bit of a different twist because it's a photo inspiration challenge. I've never actually done this type of challenge before so it was pushing the envelope a little for me. Gotta say...it was fun!
Here's the photo:
And here's my take on it:
I took inspiration from the sun in the photo but switched it out to the moon which became the shape of the card. I cut it from two pieces of yellow cardstock. On the top layer, I printed this sweet A Day For Daisies image, Spooky tree, to mimic the tree in the photo. The bottom circle was scored a half inch from the top and then set aside to become the card back.
The image was coloured with Prismacolor pencils and the circle was inked around the outside edge with two colours of Distress ink. A doodled border was added over the ink. A tiny black witch silhouette was fussy cut and adhered over the moon and rub-on lettering created the sentiment.
Such a simple little card. I am amazed that I actually only have one layer as the front of my card. Don't think I've ever done that before either...at least since I was a kid. To put the front and back of the card together, glue was added to the top half inch of the back above the score line. This allows the card to open without creasing the front.
