Hello and welcome to a brand new challenge at Seize the Birthday! To join the challenge all you have to do is create a fresh, new birthday project. You have an optional choice of using a ‘Topping’ in your creation, and this time, this topping is ‘Dots & Stripes’.
I first made the backgrounds. On one piece of cardstock I used My Favorite Things Bold Diagonal Stripes stamp with Versafine Onyx black and on the card base, I used Winnie & Walter Mini Scenery: Spotty stencil using Black Soot distress ink to apply. I then trimmed a part off the diagonal stripes piece and foam mounted it on the dotty background.
For the flowers, which are die cut from Altenew Peony Dreams, I used photo paper and watercolor on top. These are cheap watercolors I used, but they worked pretty well. Since the paper is not made to absorb ink, spotty patterns formed when I watercolored on them. So pretty! I then adhered them, piece by piece.
After adhering the flower and leaves on the card, I added the sentiment – from Altenew Label Love and Paper Trey Ink Wet Paint 3, and foam mounted them on top. I added some gold sequins scattered around the card and in the flower’s center, for some embellishing.
