My Lenten Project
Each of the last three years I have decided to use my papercrafting skills to help others and have made cards which I have donated to the organization Operation Write Home. They send the cards to the troops overseas so they have handmade cards to send home to their families for various occasions. I will try to upload my creations for the remainder of the season. Here are two that I did yesterday and today.
The first card was for the March Color Challenge at Ch(all)enge Masters. I thought the colors were great for a masculine card, which I often struggle to do because I love pink and flowers and all things girly.
The second one was for the March Ad/Art Challenge at Ch(all)enge Masters. The inspiration piece was "Vase with 12 Sunflowers" by Vincent Van Gogh. I was drawn to the texture in the brush strokes so I tried to add texture to my card using mulberry paper, ink, and leftover paper that I used to make "serendipity squares".
