My card is a bold combination of colors! I will admit that it has a lot going on.
I created the alcohol ink background a couple of days ago. This was the first time that I had played with the Altenew Alcohol marker refills on Yupo paper so it was fun to drop a few of my favorite fall colors on and let them spread around and dry.
Then I saw a CAS-ual Friday CFC #208 Sequins Challenge…you know that I love sequins and sparkly things. I decided that I would play along with that and I pulled out my favorite CAS-ual Friday stamp set called Little Birdies. I’ve had this quite a while and I still love those stacked birds! I heat embossed them in black on velum and colored them in with my Altenew markers in the same colors that I used for the Alcohol ink background.
My card layout is from Sunday Stamps Weekly Challenge Sketch SSC188. I thought the layout was a perfect way to use the birds and the background that I created. I added a sheet of Warm Sunshine card stock from Altenew to match the inks and a nice gingham jewel tone piece from the Sunny Studio Stamps pretty fall patterned paper collection that I can’t seem to get enough of! The sentiment is from Altenew’s Birthday Greetings.
One more look at the card and stamp set:
One future goal: Work on craft room lighting so I can get better pictures!
