HIMCR #284 Super Scrap Saturday Challenge

Hi everyone it is time once again for a challenge over at Hiding In My Craft Room. This week the challenge is being sponsored by A Day For Daisies. One winner will receive a $12 gift certificate.

Sami at A Day For Daisies generously e-mailed me Love Angel to use for this challenge. I love this angel and had so much fun coloring her with Spectrum Noir markers.

Originally I was going to create a Bargello background. However when I finished I realized I didn't align the strips in a Bargello pattern. Still it was a good way to use up scraps and I still have leftover my paper with some of the vertical strips as I didn't need to cut the whole sheet horizontally to go on my card base.

For my focal panel I opened the Love Angel in Silhouette Studio along with the poodle clipart I downloaded as part of plan B for last week and then didn't use. I mirrored the poodle so they would be facing each other. I then modified the speech bubble with the heart in the middle which was in Studio library. I then added the first line of "What The World Needs Now Is Love". I drew a rectangle and changed the lines to dotted lines to mimic stitching. Then selected everything and select the line print option. I printed out on photo paper. I also printed just the love angel on a piece of deli paper.

By the way Silhouette Studio is free to download and you can print out your design without having to have a cutting machine. It is an inexpensive way to combine images and you know me I'm frugal.

I painted the wings on the deli paper copy on both sides with Amethyst Liquid Metals.  Painting on both sides keeps the paper from curling.

I traced around the halo using a gold Sharpie. I used a Spectrum Noir marker for the rest of the image.

I hope you will check out the digital stamps from A Day For Daisies as well as join in the super scrap challenge. While you are at you may want to spread a little love around yourself. I'm getting ready to make Valentines for volunteers.  Without men and women donating their time a lot of nonprofit organizations could not keep providing some much needed services.

Thank you for stopping by and do come back. Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
