A Little FUNN-ercise

My friend and upline, Mary Gunn, gave her team a little FUNN-ercise challenge a few weeks ago to create a card from Make It From Your Heart Volume 2: Pattern 28.  Mary is so creative and inspirational.   I made the card, but didn't get around to sharing it.  So, here it is...

Part of the challenge was to use background and texture paper from two different packs.  I used scraps from Lollydoodle and Balloon Ride.

I paper pieced the car image by stamping it on several different paper scraps. Then, I added Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint to the back windshield to give the illusion of reflection and red Glitz glitter gel for the taillights.  The cans are colored in with a tiny bit of Juniper ink on the tip of a slightly damp watercolor brush.  The sentiment in the stamp set says "You are the One."  I masked off the "the," giving the sentiment a new meaning.  A few sparkles and Teal Shimmer Trim add a touch of bling to the sentiment area.

  1. This is my "Most Used" card pattern from Make it From Your Heart and I LOVE what you did with it! I didn't think I needed the "Big Hug" stamp set.... but you just convinced me that I do.

  2. Great and fun card! So different and love the way you modified the sentiment... love this card (as always)
