Good afternoon to my visitors.... What a change - from masculine to childs play I loved it!!
I had seen the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge and when I was planning this card it fitted this image really well - and after I had made it, I realised the colour scheme had also fitted in with the Our Creative Corner challenge for this week of Blue and Green!
I wanted bright colours for this child as she really is a delight and full of fun. I started with the green base, which is a bright, acid, green.
I then tried to use a paper towel as a stamp to put a visual texture on the card as I had seen in an online tutorial recently - it did not work, so I inked up another paper towel with Pear Tart ink and used that instead!!
The duck was stamped in black ink and clear embossed, then painted with twinkling H2O's, mounted on dark blue and a bright green card before being layered over the blue card at the top.
The brown punched strip was on my desk, so got used across the bottom of the card before adding the sentiment, which was gold embossed on blue.
Next came the bling around the top blue panel and the end of the sentiment panel and presto - a bright and cheerful card for a bright and cheerful three year old!
I enjoyed this card and was so pleased that it filled two challenges.
I usually tend more towards clean and simple when it comes to cards and was pleased that I managed the bling on this - only to find that the Midnight Madness challenge this week gives the option of CAS!!
