Dandy Birthday Wishes

The new Colour INKspiration Challenge – CI95 colors are so lovely this time around.  The image is wonderfully exotic too and had me dreaming up an idea…

Here is what I created:

These are the steps I followed:

  • I chose Shimmery White cardstock because it has a heavier weight and I was going to abuse it.
  • I had a fairly decent sized piece of Bubble Wrap.  With a Sponge Brayer, I added Balmy Blue ink to the bubbles and pressed the panel into it and gently moved my fingers across the back.
  • This step was repeated with the Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape and Blackberry Bliss inks to build up the background.
  • I crinkled a piece of Wax Paper, unfolded it and tapped Versamark direct from ink pad onto the crinkles.  I then pressed the panel on to the wax paper.  Gold Embossing Powder was sprinkled across the panel and heat set creating the marbled gold pattern.
  • I opted for Blackberry Bliss as my card base and for my embellishments because I liked the stronger contrast with my finished panel.
  • The sentiment, Birthday Wishes, was die-cut from the Well Written Dies and the Floral elements were die-cut from the Dandy Wishes Dies.
  • I used a small stipple brush along with a bit of Delicata Golden Glitz ink (retired) to add a little golden accent to the Flowers.

Creating the marbled patterned paper was an idea that popped in to my head overnight.  I am really glad that it turned out as nicely as it did.  I think it looks great behind the die-cut elements that make up the card. Don’t you? 

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today.  Cheers,  Jolanda!
