NBUS Birthday Ballerina
I'm playing along at Loll and Bonnie's new challenge, CAS Mix Up (Mixed Media cards, but keeping them clean and simple). This first challenge is all about stamping and watercolouring, then adding mediums/techniques of your choice from the list.
Well, the stamping and watercolouring is self-evident. The background is a 5x3 Gelli Plate panel using pink and purple acrylic inks with lace, and bubblewrap stamping with white acrylic ink. I also doodled a border around the panel with purple gel pen before fussy cutting it, stamping the sentiment and adhering it to the card base. Oh, and there's a touch of Stickles on the little ballerina's tiara.
I'm also playing along at Darnell's NBUS Challenge with the ballerina stamp (Crafter's Companion). I've got some other new NBUS stamps, but I can't remember where I put them....
ETA: Just realised it's eligible for Simon Says Monday challenge - Make Your Own Background.
