A Real Woman
Hello, and welcome to the March Words 2 Craft By challenge. This month we have a quote from Maya Angelou..."I'm a woman. Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman. That's me." I know everyone who visits my blog must roll their eyes when they see me use yet another Unity Stamp Company Angie Girl but they really have the most amazing images and beautiful sentiments. This one really stood out to me and I thought it really embodied the essence our quote this month!
To create my card I started by layering some rust colored cardstock from Hobby Lobby onto my white card base and then covering it with some patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Country Meadows 12x12 paper pack. I stamped the beautiful image from the Unity Stamp Company's Angie Girl Rebuild Herself stamp set using Memento tuxedo black ink and my mini-Misti and colored her with my alcohol markers to compliment the patterned papers. I cut the image down into a focal panel, matted it onto the same cardstock, and adhered it to the card at an angle for some visual contrast to the busy paper. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set and mounted it onto some of the same cardstock. I popped it up off of the card using some fun foam and called this card done. I look forward to seeing all of the beautiful creations my fellow design team members and the participants create!
