For this card, I went with blending -- and water spatters. And, I have to say, I'm much happier with the way this card turned out!
|my blended background of DI mustard seed and salty ocean|
|Canson watercolor' Stampin' Up! black|
Distress Inks: mustard seed, salty ocean, and black soot
Winnie & Walter big bold happy cutaways and sentiment
adhesives: Scotch ATG; Zig 2-way glue pen
I chose to ink the bottom third in yellow so that the birthday sentiment would pop. The "happy" cutaway is 2-ply to give it a little stronger presence.
Think this will be my nephew's birthday card. I purposely went with blue and yellow -- avoiding pinks and purples.
Can't wait to see what Day 3 holds. And, would still like to go back and try one or two other Day One techniques! Thanks so much Jennifer, Laura, and Kristina on a rockin' Day One!
