Good morning everyone,
the new theme over at the Everybody-Art-Challenge is «Monochrome».
Therefore I created a blue Birthday card combining two current popular techniques: Stenciling and Watercoloring.
At first, I did the stenciled background using the fabulous «Tweed Pattern» stencil from Hero Arts and Wendy Vecchi white embossing paste. After letting it air dry for about 30 minutes, I added three bluish Distress Inks (Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire) and water. I heat set it with my heat tool and did some random ink splatters.
Since this background reminds me of an underwater world and the recipient's zodiac is Pisces, I added the little fish from the «Ori Kami» stamp set from Altenew. I heat embossed it on vellum and did some fussy cutting. My sentiment was build with the Mama Elephant's «happy» die cut («Happy Script» die and foil cardstock) and a white embossed «birthday» by Winnie & Walter.
At least, I adhered some matching sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and my stash.
