Seize The Birthday, with a Surprise Birthday Guest!

Hi, and welcome to a new challenge at Seize The Birthday, and a new feature!  Every month we will have a Surprise Party Guest, and our inaugural guest is none other than the wonderfully talented 

Our topping for this challenge is Splatter.  Be still, my beating heart!  I love me some splatter, even when it's quite understated like today.  For my card, I stamped the baseball boot in Faded Denim, then with a paintbrush I pulled the colour in, deepening it where necessary.  I laid down a wash with Faded Denim and Peacock Feathers, then covered it with glass bead gel, then mounted the panel onto textured card.

Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog to see what Anita and the Design Team have created, and join in with your birthday project.  If you're not into splatters, you can still join in, as long as it's a birthday project.

I'm entering my card into Virginia's View - All Things Coloured.


  1. Pretty colors and great masculine card.

  2. Understated or full blown, Shirley, I'm always in awe of your splattering! Cool colouring ... I can almost hear the crunch of the bead gel underfoot ... brilliant! Thanks so much for your sweet words and lovely shout out! Hugs, Anita :)

  3. Super young man's card Shirley! The light splatter is perfect...I think I over did it on mine. I guess less is more.... so to speak. Thanks for the realization!
