The Mixed Media Card Challenge #31 – January – Change

Happy New Year!

Challenge Badge

Hi! I’m here with a card for The Mixed Media Card Challenge for January:

Theme: Change
(e.g., new chapter, changing colors, changing season)
optional element: water

Here’s my card:

slide1       I suppose that this is a very nontraditional card for the month of January in the Northern Hemisphere, but I tried to illustrate our challenge’s theme and the verse I used at the same time.

slide3

The blooms gradually change from a frosty, frozen white to a golden, glowing yellow. Moving from the frosty Winter to the warm Summer. This is something to celebrate in my book! I really love how this card turned out. It was one of those rare times when I had a picture of a finished card in my head and I was able to exactly execute what I had seen. 🙂 Yay!

I used the ARTplorations stencils Retro Circles and Bloom Silhouettes.

I also have a discount code for you!

Shery, of STAMPlorations, has generously given me a code to share with you.

Use COUPON code STAMPGIRLMELISSA and receive 20% OFF at STAMPlorations!

preview-web-stencil-045-BloomSilhouettes

slide5

I started by stenciling a rainbow onto the white background panel with the ARTplorations Retro Circles stencil.

Then I stenciled white, silver, blue, green and yellow embossing paste through ARTplorations Bloom Silhouettes stencil. slide7

I printed out my own sentiment onto vellum and added a narrow blue foil mat to the stenciled panel.slide2

I assembled the pieces by folding the vellum around the matted panel and then mounting it on a white card base. slide6    This will be the first and last challenge for 2017 at The Mixed Media Card Challenge blog. After 2 1/2 years, it’s time to say goodbye.  Make sure you stop by The MMCC blog and check out my teammates’ superb creations! We hope that you play along and enjoy this final challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!

Grace, Peace & Happy New Year,
Melissa
