I was super happy to notice yesterday my card was showcased at Less Is More and I couldn't wait to see what their new challenge would be today. It turned out it's their 6th birthday! Happy Birthday Less Is More! There's a month long party with prizes and lots of fun stuff happening... Don't miss any of it, click HERE. The new challenge is:
We were advised to use 3 colors next to each other. I chose yellow, orange and red.
In addition to LIM, the inspiration behind this card comes from Darnell and her NBUS Challenges. I'm entering her NBUS Challenge #10 using also the optional theme "bubble wrap". My NBUS items are the smile-die + the clear drops.
To celebrate Darnell's blog birtaversary big time I also wanted to use the optional theme from her previous NBUS challenge -that theme was "hidden sentiment with die cuts" and I didn't have time to try that technique then. To be honest te technique has a fancier name but I've forgotten it! :) Anyway, now I had time for both of Darnell's fun techniques and this is what I did:
I used drops of 3 colors of alcohol ink-refills + blending solution directly on bubble wrap. I took a piece of card and pressed it directly onto the bubble wrap and got this fun bg, yay! The stamped card was originally bigger but I trimmed it for more CAS look. After the stamped piece was dry I cut the smile-word out of it and also 4 times out of plain white card, stacked these together and adhered the thick word to the "slot" I had die cut from the stamped piece. LOVE how it turned out! Such a fun technique , I had never tried this before. Thank you for the inspiration, Darnell!
To finish this card I simply adhered my embellished card to a card base, added an additional sentiment and a couple of clear drops. Oh and I wink of stellad the die cut sentiment too. I just had to! :)
The stamped sentiment + sentiment die both come from STAMPlorations. I'm also entering:
That's all this time! Darnell and the ladies at LIM:
Smile, it's your day!
