The next time that I try this technique, I will be sure to do it on a Saturday when I have nothing else to do! This was super time consuming.
But OH SO WORTH THE EFFORT!!
I stamped the background using Altenew’s Floral Arrangement stamp set. If you have never used an Altenew set, you must give it a try! Most of the images are 3-4 layers. You add darker colors as you use the smaller part of the image, building what looks like a carefully colored image along the way.
The end result is a truly beautiful image.
I have not yet quite mastered the layering. I never get them quite lined up and perfection matters with these images.
I do embrace the imperfections and it still ends up so pretty, if not quite perfectly aligned!
Another 2 for 1 technique! Gotta love it!
I die cut the giant numbers that I laid out in random order and directions. Then I matted the numbers to one card and the cut out part on another card.
The sentiment comes from the Altenew Birthday Builder set. One of my favorite sets!
I think this is a visually stunning technique with all of the bright colors against the white background. So pretty. This is in my LOVE technique bag of tricks!
Well…quite frankly, I’m exhausted. I’ve been up since a little before 5 AM and it is now past 10 PM. Time to call it a day!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Do find time to craft and embrace the imperfections!
