That sounds like a perfect theme for the year, doesn’t it? Well, it also makes one great statement for a birthday card. I made this card along with yesterday’s project so they definitely go together.
I wanted to use both sides of the designer series paper just to see the differences. The polka dots were a bit more whimsy with this side definitely leaning towards the masculine side. This new candle border punch could keep me busy for days! Doesn’t it give such a great look both inside and out? I had to restrain myself from keeping all of the punched pieces to build little candles on other things. Another time perhaps.
I kept the stamping light as well as the water coloring. Just one color here, delightful dijon, and I love the simplicity of it. I did have to tie some metallic thread though, it needed it. When I looked at the stamping I wanted a bit more with some of the words, so I had a couple of ideas. I colored in the ‘another year’ portion with the daffodil delight water color pencil, it matched great! I also went over the ‘full’ portion with the gold wink of stella brush pen and loved it.
I did distress the water coloring a bit with water drops, just can’t help myself sometimes. I do what I love and I love what I do. Can’t wait to try this one again.
Have a creative day!
