Hi everyone, it’s time for the August 2019 challenge at AAA Birthday. Come along and visit our blog and see what the Design Team has created and a special welcome to Clarissa as this months Guest Designer.
This months challenge theme is For the Boys and I knew I wanted to use some recently purchase Robot stamps from Katzelkraft.
Hi Everyone, it’s time for the July 2019 challenge at AAA Birthday. Come along and visit our blog and see what the Design Team has created and a special welcome to Michelle Lupton as this months Guest Designer.
I’m very excited to announce I am joining the Design Team at AAA Birthday Challenge. I still can’t quite believe I was selected and they have an amazing team of designers to give you inspiration for each monthly challenge. There is still time to play along with the June Challenge “Use Water Colours”.
This months challenge is Using Watercolours so I had a play with some metallic watercolours and Inktense Pencils which you can use like watercolours.
YAY…I’m HAPPY in LOVE with this one layer card. This is my second card I’ll be entering in the current AAA Birthday Card Challenge. I decided to leave “BIRTHDAY” off the front of the card so this could be used for celebrations other than birthdays. Just add the occasion sentiment on the inside of the card.
Images and Background
The stamp set is Party Pals from Avery Elle. I stamped them on Copic friendly cardstock as I knew I particularly wanted to colour a background.
The words are coloured using 2-3 colours but I left the stars just one colour.
I ruled the lines with a copic friendly thin black marker and used the Warm Greys from the copic range to add depth to the background panelling.
I also used the Neutral greys to add drop shadows behind the words and the stars.
I used some brads to imitate the banner being attached to the wall. I’ve had them for ages and they happened to match my colour scheme perfectly.
To finish off I added Glossy Accents to the words to give an extra bit of dimension (see photos below).
