I was delighted to be asked to be a Guest Designer at CRAFT-alnica, Slovenian challenge blog, for month of August. Two weeks ago I shared my first GDT project and today I'm sharing my second project as GDT at CRAFT-alnica.
The challenge for this fortnight is #193 - Okvir / Frame. Use a frame on your project, make or decorate a frame.
I love hand drawn frames, so I decided to go with a hand drawn frame. And this is my take on the challenge: Education, Quotation Card.
This is a decoration magnet (it has a magnetic sheet on the back). I made it for myself (actually for a refrigerator, as magnets can't stick on me LOL).
To make this one, I was inspired with a Quotation Card I made last year (find it here).
I was also inspired with colors from a photo below shared on Addicted to Stamps and More blog for the challenge #255 - Photo inspiration. :o)
And a photo shared on Cupcakes Inspirations for the challenge CIC419.

I quoted one of my favorite philosophers, Jiddu Krishnamurti. :o)
How I made my quotation card/magnet...
I cut a white watercolor paper panel and typed quotation on a typewriter and drew line frame with superfine permanent marker (0.4 mm).
Images are layered. I stamped pile of books from Jane's Doodles 'Read All About It' stamp set directly on the panel and once more on a piece of watercolor paper. Then I colored books in watercolor technique using Distress Inks.
I colored a background in watercolor technique using Distress Ink Blueprint Sketch (DIBS). I added several layers of color and dried them between. When I was satisfied with the color, I splattered whole panel with water and DIBS.
After drying, I fussy cut colored books, colored edges with a black marker and glued them over stamped images on the panel. I added white highlights on books and the panel was finished.
The watercolor paper I used was thick and you could kind of see black color of the magnetic sheet through it. To solve this "problem", I cut a white cardstock base, same size as the watercolor paper, and glued colored panel on it. At the end I glued whole card on the magnetic sheet and my quotation card /magnet was finished.
Dimensions: 88 mm x 126 mm (3 1/2" x 5")
