Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Sending Prayers


Hello, Today I am playing along with Woodblock Wednesday over on Amy Tsuruta’s Blog- Tsuruta’s Designs. If you have not heard of it you should definitely check it out. I can imagine if you are a card maker you have some woodblock stamps that you just can’t part with. I have quite a few and have them on display in my studio. The card I made for this challenge certainly didn’t end up as it started but that’s the creative process, right?

Some Card Details: The Wooden stamp is so beautiful and called Wild Rose from Rubber Stampede. The prayers die and sentiments are from Hero Arts. I used a bit of white crayon to soften the stamped black lines as I had intended to do a crayon resist. The more I looked at it the more I liked how the panel looked and changed my mind. Things continued to change after that. Then, I cut out the word Prayers and layered the top piece with two other white layers to give it some depth. Next, I positioned prayers back on the card base and it just got so lost and you could hardly read it. By the way, you know how hard it was to get the nine small middles of those letters back where they went so the pattern continued and none of the teal card base showed through? It takes some skill and patience, which I luckily had today. LOL If you have done this technique before you understand exactly what I am talking about. After all of that, I decided to cut out one more layer in teal and put it on top. Low in behold, you actually could read it…LOL After I was completely done, I came back with a Prisma colored pencil and very loosely and softly colored the leaves.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day, and if you have time, join Amy and her fun challenge. Nanc’
