Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and Ashwini wants us to make it pop!!
or, just play along with any card for a birthday.
They, along with my team mates, have some wonderful inspiration for you, so I hope you can play along.
I need to stop watching youtube!!
I was inspired by this card by Channin.
(I am seriously lusting after that stamp and those colourful inkpads lol!!)
The only ink splotch stamp I seem to have is an old Stampin Up one, Gorgeous Grunge.
It's long retired and dated from around 2013 or 2014.
I also had to do some swatches of my random ink pads to see which colours would be bright enough.
(The only full sets I have are Lavinia, distress inks and oxides and I didn't think they'd work.)
So I ended up using some Stampin Up, Versacolor and Hero Hues inks with versamark ink and clear embossing powder.
Once the colours were stamped and embossed I blended over some black soot distress ink, then wiped any ink of the embossed areas.
The sentiment die was cut from white shimmer card, I think you can just see the sparkle.
I'm linking up to these challenges:
Allsorts, anything goes and congrats on the blogs 14th birthday, what a great milestone!
