Hello and welcome to another edition of Seize the Birthday challenge! For this challenge, anytime is ‘Anything Goes’ as long as it’s a birthday theme, but, if want little challenge, you can choose to go with the Topping. This time, the topping, chosen by Barbara is ‘Show Me Your White Space.’
And what Barbara has mentioned about white space –
“The idea of white space doesn’t refer to a primarily white card (though often, as is the case, but rather, the idea of leaving a significant portion of your design open, free from embellishment, allowing your focal point to truly shine.
(Taken from MFT Summer School 2018)”
Thank you! And so, I haven’t used a white card base!! 😀
I started with a dark blue card stock. I added the scattered gold dots in the background using the dotted stamp from Simon Says Stamp Falling Backgrounds stamp and heat embossing it with chunky gold ep. Since I used chunky ep, I got a splattered effect instead of round dots.
I then stamped the flower from Altenew Persian Motifs and heat embossed it in gold twice, to get some dimension. I also stamped, gold embossed a few pieces of leaves. I then fussy cut all of them.
The stamped piece of the sentiment comes from Winnie & Walter Sentimental: Birthday, which I stamped in a mix of inks to end up with a color near to the cardstock’s color.
I also die cut a few pieces of white cardstock scraps usig the MFT Elegant Rectangle and Simon Says Stamp ‘You’ dies. I then colored one of the ‘You’ red using my Zig brush pen. Of the framed diecuts, I trimmed of one end of each diecut. I then adhered all of the pieces.
Finally, I adhered all the pieces together, added a single gold sequin for embellishing…. and there you have it! That’s my card for the challenge, all ready! 😉
I am also joining the following challenges –
