Hi Everyone. Happy Wednesday
I am sorry that I haven't posted the last couple of days, but I have been really tied up at work... well, not literally, but I think you all know what I mean :-)
I got the chance to play along with this great theme across at AAA Cards this week
Now, those of you who follow my blog regularly will know that I cannot walk away from a stencil challenge :-) For this card I decided to go with a literal translation of the challenge as I have a great number stencil!
I used my Ranger and Heidi Swapp spray inks. The reason I love them for this card is for their shimmer qualities. Lou's reaction when he saw this card was: "well, you are never going to capture this in a photograph!" He's right, too. When you look at it straight on... it's a gorgeous shade of dark teal, when you turn it slightly - most of it is gold.... I just wish you could really see it in hand to get the fabulousness of the shimmer :-)
Here's a view from one side:
Then... from another angle:
Guess you would like to see the whole card ? :-)
I die-cut the "birthday" from Papertrey Ink's Wonderful Words - Birthday several times from Island Indigo card stock and mounted them on top of each other. I tied that to the base of the card, which is made from the same color card stock.
I hope you will pop along to AAA cards and check out the fabulous design team and submission cards - some great inspiration there for you.
On a personal note:
Well... I loved hearing about what you enjoyed - or would like to enjoy - about London. The random winner of the Tim Holtz London stamp set is:
