Go Bold Or Go Home

By | 09/24/2018

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.  Stamping Imperfection Little Birdies

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.

Then I added my sequins from a pretty yellow and orange mix that I have from an old card kit.http://cas-ualfridays.blogspot.com/2018/09/cfc-208-use-those-sequins.html

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.http://sundaystamps.blogspot.com/

One more look at the card and stamp set:

One future goal:  Work on craft room lighting so I can get better pictures!
