OLW 62 Make it personalPosted: July 13, 2011
Susan from Simplicity has designed a one layer challenge for this week which requires us to create a card with a personal touch. Her card features a map of the USA with the states coloured in where she and her husband have lived; a very cool idea. As it is my daughter’s birthday today and no, I did not have the card made ahead of time, I decided to make hers my challenge card. Her favourite colour is yellow so I chose to feature yellow on her card. For her I would usually match it with green but for a change I decided to throw some pink into the mix which, when blended, added a bit of orange. I made the birthday greeting using a funky alphabet from Close to my Heart. She also likes funky designs.
I masked the area first and stamped the letters in versamark before embossing in clear. I then stamped the flowers randomly around the panel in yellow and pink. I sponged in yellow and pink then added the rose red flowers and a bit more sponging.
