It's time for another fab ColourQ challenge and this week we've got a really versatile combo to play with...
I was determined not to use flowers again (lol) as I seem to always gravitate towards those kind of images. I wanted to create a guy's birthday card and so pulled out a few different stamp sets and dies and ended up with this...
I wanted to try a fun background technique I've seen around recently where you sponge the ink onto a portion of the stamp before stamping - I used the Dictionary background stamp and Tempting Turquoise ink then stamped over the top with Gorgeous Grunge and Encore gold ink. The film strip frame was die-cut with Choc Chip card the the sentiment (stamped on Naturals White with Choc Chip ink) was layered inside. I added some stars stamped with Pool Party (from Perfect Pennants) as well as a smaller one from one of the Thinlit die collections. The banner at the top was cut from Gold foil card and layered with a Tempting Turquoise die-cut arrow (again from a Thinlits collection) and a Neutrals button.
Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Dictionary, Another Great Year, Perfect Pennants, Gorgeous Grunge
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Pool Party, Chocolate Chip, Gold Encore
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Pool Party, Chocolate Chip, Gold foil, Whisper White, Naturals Ivory
Accessories: Neutrals button, gold sequins
Tools: Banners framelits, On Film Framelits, Thinlits card collections
