Seize The Birthday - Vibrant Colours


We've got a new challenge for you at Seize The Birthday, and this week our optional topping is Vibrant Colours.  Purple and lime are fairly vibrant, aren't they? ;)

I've used some stamps by Stamping Unicorn.  I inked them with Distress Stains, stamped onto damp mixed media paper and let the colour bleed, spritzing extra water where necessary, and once it was dry I re-stamped the image for definition.  After stamping the sentiment I diecut the panel, added some washi strips then mounted it onto purple card.

Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the rest of the team, and from our Surprise Party Guest, Kim, and play along with us.

  6. Shirley I really like your imagery and take on the vibrant colours for your birthday card. I think that restamping the image after it's watercoloured is such a great step in making the image pop. Beautiful! Thanks for sharing your technique.
