The challenge on Layers of Color is to make an umbrella for our project. I have made an Artist Trading Card.
The mountboard base was coloured with Distress Inks (tattered rose, antique linen & milled lavender). I used a clear stamp by Claritystamp, inked with Distress Ink (peeled paint) to decorate the corners. I then triple embossed using clear VersaMark Ink & clear embossing powder.
The lady is printed from a copyright-free graphics cd from Crafty Computer Paper.
I made her an umbrella from a semi-circle of pink cardstock, which had been stamped in black ink with the same clear stamp. The top of the umbrella was cut using deckle edged scissors. I made a handle from gold wire & beads.
I used Glossy Accents to highlight the flower in her hair. I also used it on the bottom of her dress & umbrella to make it look like she had been caught in a shower of rain.
