How much fun, recently I was asked to be a guest designer on a brand new challenge blog, AAA Cards.
To make this even better, Victoria had noticed one of my cards on my blog and wanted that to be the inspiration piece for this week. Above is my original card.
I created another card using the original card for the inspiration. In the first card, I had used a stsencil to create colorful dots. I took that same stencil and created a reverse of the dots. I embossed the dots with white embossing powder and then added color with Distress Stamp pads to the background. The white embossed dots acted as a resist to the stamp pad inks. I thought the bright colors looked like a party waiting to happen.
That great word "happy" and the word "birthday" that I used to create a background are stamps from Winnie and Walter.
Next I just had to play along with this super cool color combination from Color Throwdown. I just loved that silver was one of the colors.
I created a very simple background with a dot stencil and two colors of Distress Ink.
To add the silver, I cut the "Hello" that is a die from PaperTrey, Inc from silver cardstock. The little doily piece is a die cut from My Favorite Things.
