Birthday Pop of Colour

Hi, I made this card using my background woodgrain folder again. I'll stop using it soon!! I used my moonglow mica powders for the banner. I was inspired by Nichole Heady, who has a great video on using Perfect Pearls with Versamark ink.

I'm entering the challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show, where the theme is to use a pop of colour.
I'm also entering the challenge at Simon Says Stamp, where the theme is anything goes.

The mica powders are quite shiny and irridescent IRL, it doesn't show too well in my photo. Here's a pic of some that shows the sheen.

Materials used: Darkroom Door woodgrain stamp; Maya Road banner stamps; Simon Says Stamp banner die; Mica powders; Versamark ink; Versafine ink & clear embossing powder for the background; Distress inks; sentiment sticker from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)

  8. Hi Cathy,

    I saw this card while visiting the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog and had to get a closer look - Love the woodgrain - this would make a perfect "masculine" birthday card!

  9. Hi Cathy
    I've been so busy in the garden I have fallen behind in visiting. Just paged back to catch up and i am sure glad I did/ I have this stamp and have never inked it! You are inspiring me to dig it out and ink it up!

    I love the way you have done the versafine ink and then embossed it! Wow!!!
    These weathered wood cards are just stunning!


I love having you visit, and enjoy reading your comments. Thank you for taking the time! :)
