Your Number's Up!

Hello, August! The first of the month signals a new Naughty or Nice challenge, and since we've hit the big 3-0, it seems only appropriate that our newest challenge is YOUR NUMBER'S UP! We're looking for age-related cards or other creations, which gives you lots of opportunity for a bit of naughtiness. ;) Here's mine: 

This card made me realize I need more cake stamps in my life. This is a combination Unity cake with the candles from a Studio G stamp. When I made this, I was having the kind of day where masking the two together seemed waaaay more difficult than it should have been. :D The sparkly glow behind the candles is inspired by cards my friend Jessi has made — she has a cool kind of paint she uses, I sponged yellow ink and iridescent medium to achieve a similar look. The crazy cat looks rather worried, doesn't he? 
Check out the fun inspiration the rest of the Naughty or Nice designers have created for your viewing pleasure! You have until August 25th to join us. 

Supplies: white cardstock, Fluid watercolour paper, Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz Crazy Cats stamps & dies, Snarky Stamps Ahh Birthday, Unity Eat Cake & Studio G stamps, Versafine onyx black, Colorbox espresso, Memento dandelion & twisted citron distress inks, Zing clear embossing powder, MFT blueprints 24 stitched rectangle die, Zig clean color markers, iridescent medium, Glossy Accents, glue dots

Pin It Now!

Absolutely love the look on the cat's face (the eyes especially). Nice job mixing all the different stamps together.
