I Feel the Love- May

It is nearing the end of the month, which means it is time for me to share my card for the I Feel the Love Project.  This month Madison is collecting cards for a man named Reggie Nelinger who is watching his daughter battle cancer for the second time in her life.  You can read more about it here.

I used the May Card Sketch at Practical Scrappers as my starting point.  I used My Mind's Eye papers.

The lamp was cut using my Cricut and the Sentimentals cartridge.  To make the light beams, I smudged some gold ink on the card, but it didn't show up very well. I went over it with a paint brush and some white mist.  I then blotted it to soften the appearance.  The hinges are grungeboard that I painted with gold acrylic paint and then pressed on a dark brown ink pad.  I smudged the brown ink with a tissue as well to soften its appearance.  Finally, I went over the sentiment with Glossy Accents and the lamp with Vintage Photo Distress Stickles.   In the inside I wrote: "Continue to let your light shine."
