Hey Friends, Seize the Birthday has a great new challenge for us! "The Toppings" is to use the colors Teal and White. Who doesn't love a pretty teal, aqua turquoise-y color? It's my favorite after pink.
I used a Newton's Nook "Newton's Birthday Bash" stamp for this. It only occurred to me after the card was done that I should have put some clouds or ground at the bottom to give him a reference point. Oh well! (Rookie move, haha)
I colored the image with Zig watercolor markers, masked it with masking paper and sponged on some distress ink in an ombre fashion. I then splattered it with water and more distress ink, set it on a teal card base and added some sequins and tiny MS confetti. Lastly I added a healthy dose of glossy accents on the balloon.
I had so much fun with this card esp. pulling the mask off and seeing the image and background together. It never gets old!
Come play with us this week, won't you?
The Toppings are Teal and White! or you can always use Anything Goes. Your choice.
I'm guesting for March and April! WooHoo!
