Celebrate In Style!

Welcome again to the blog! I have a couple of posts today, as I have had time to enter some challenges and to play! The weather here was really rainy, so the perfect time to stay in. I had to fight my urge to make labels and stick them on the ink pads which I have renewed my love for - more of that later!

I have used Mama Elephant 'Bloomsies' and the matching Creative Cuts to create the focal points of the card. The watercolour background was created using Adirondack Brights dye inks (Pool, Sunshine Yellow, Watermelon) and water to move the ink around, and a new Stampin Up! Stencil. The Bloomsies were stamped and then using a wet brush I moved the ink around again to give the watercolour effect. The sequins were created using the Mama Elephant Confetti Creative Cut, with watercolour base of Sunshine Yellow or Pool, with Sakura sparkle applied with a water brush. This gave them a lovely sparkle - which unfortunately my photography does not show too well - you can see it a little in the detail shot below.


I would like to enter this into three challenges. They are:

Mama Elephant and Me - August Challenge (Watercolouring and Birthdays)
CASology - Rainbow
CAS(E) this Sketch! - #87 - Gayatri Murali

Thanks for looking! Kx
