Just one photo this time (usually it's a photo collage) But there is definitely lots going on! I was inspired by the celebratory nature of the image, the bright colours — purple, teal, yellow, pink — and the confetti/sprinkles on the tablecloth. (The food inspired a snack, but that's different. :D ) Here is my card:
Normally I have trouble going against nature's colours when I'm making a card, but somehow a purple hippo felt right. His toenails just happen to match the bird, and his hat the balloon. After colouring the balloon, I painted it with a layer of iridescent medium and then a thick coat of Glossy Accents. Shiny and sparkly!
The polka dot washi tape across the bottom is my nod to the sprinkles.
The CAS Mix Up challenge this month is looking for stamping plus markers. I've got those plus die-cutting, paint (the iridescent medium) and Glossy Accents, so it really is a mixed media CAS card!
Supplies: white & black cardstock, Essentials by Ellen Wish Big stamps & dies, Versafine onyx black & smokey gray ink, Spectrum Noir markers, My Mind's Eye washi tape, pop-dot tape
