I was inspired by this week's Heart 2 Heart challenge to create essentially a ribbon with paper. I realized when I was working on the last project (Journal cover), that distressing small pieces of paper is not the easiest, so for this card, I distressed the edge of an intact piece of cardstock, and then I just cut a sliver off. I cut a wider piece of black cardstock, about 3/4", and then lined it with Tombow adhesive. Then I just layered the slivers of colored cardstock on top. I did supplement with some liquid glass as needed. Then I cut the entire 12" 'ribbon' into the smaller pieces (3", 4", 5").
The clouds were hand drawn, cut out and then sponged with Heavenly Blue ink. The writing was (biting fingers) handwritten, and the sentiment on the inside of the card reads "look for the rainbows". I popped out the black frame as well as the cloud with the writing on it with 3-D tape. Finally, for the small circle, I used a circle punch, sponged the outside, and handwrote the verse reference - Jeremiah 29:11 (For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.)
