Birthday Catch Up

I think I have about 10 cards to do for November, so I started last night. Yeah, yeah, it's a little late. I had to get them done, though, so I got to work. I made 2 for Saturday.

This one was done using watercolor paper for the top layer. I used the crayons directly on the stamp and then on the paper. A piece of elegant eggplant makes the 2nd layer and the bottom layer is basic gray put through the Cuttlebug. I rubbed white craft ink on the top of the embossed layer to highlight the top of it. I like the effect it gives. A piece of pink satin ribbon is tied around the top layer to finish it off.

The other card didn't turn out quite like I planned. It's ok, but just not what I had in mind when I started. Again, I used the watercolor paper for the top layer. The bottom layer is basic gray and embossed. Instead of white craft ink, though, I used a bit of basic black to highlight the ridges. Then, I sprayed the piece with Glitter Mist. I ended up going back over some of the ridges with a little more basic black. The hummingbird image is colored with water color crayons and blended with the Aqua Painter. A piece of organdy white ribbon is secured behind the layers.

This shows the basic gray layer a little better. It looks a little like old metal.

I'd love to hear what you think! Have a great day stamping - and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!!
