The balloon dies are Penny Black, the square is Spellbinders & the card is PTI. The darling sentiment is from my blogging friend, Lisa's PRS Stamp Set called Sweet Pea. The green glitter is Heidi Swapp tape attached to cardstock & the dotted paper was a little scrap in my stash. So fun to add some loops to the twine I used for strings. Might end up giving this BD card to an adorable little girl in our neighborhood who's about to turn 3. I'm also entering Seize the Birthday.
Next are 2 cards I made after thinking for days about W&W The Gossip Column No 7. The challenge is to use the look of letterpress/typography. I knew I wanted to use the fun foam stamp I made a long time ago from the W&W Hello die. It's time to make a new one, but the look from the worn one is actually close to some of the examples.
I used Brilliance Mediterranean Blue & Rocket Red for the word from C&9th. I really wanted to add something, but didn't think that would be very Alan Kitching like.
After cutting down the panel I attached it to a card sponged with the same blue ink. Gotta say, I would never have made these cards without the challenge & it was really fun creating way outside the box--haha! I'm entering Word Art Wednesday. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
