Addicted to Stamps and More: Any Occasion

At Addicted to Stamps and More, it's time for a new challenge: Any Occasion! It's quite possible that the next time this rolls around, I'll be focussed on Christmas cards, but since I needed a birthday card, that's my occasion this time:

I think the sentiment and this classic image of Einstein pair well, don't you? :D To start, I stamped him on some watercolour paper, then stamped him again so I could mask him while I added watercolour powder, mostly in blue, but with a little bit of green, as well. Of course, both colours have a few other pigments in their mix, adding to the fun background look. Removing the mask, I added just a bit of colour to Alfred's face and tongue. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz sticker that I matted on the same green that I used for the backing panel. Both are mounted on a blue card base. 

The ATSM team have a variety of occasions covered in their inspiration cards - so I hope you'll pick your own occasion and join us! 

Supplies: Hero Arts blue layering & Memory Box lush green cardstock, Canson watercolour paper, Viva Las VegaStamps Einstein's Tongue stamp, MFT extreme black ink, Magenta Nuance celadon & spring green watercolour powders, Zig markers, Tim Holtz Small Talk Snarky sticker

Oh my that background is fabulous, I'm really challenged when it comes to powders. Great image and a super sentiment and so true, but not always.

Ahah ! This is just fabulous ! Love your association of this funny Einstein's face with the great sentiment (and so true !). Beautiful background with the powders too, those blues and greens are so gorgeous together. Love it !
