Happy Monday! This means it is time for another inspirational post for the current Inky Paws Challenge #54 Polka dots. I just love this theme, so many ideas are floating around in my head. If only I had enough time to make a card from all of them.
This time I played with patterned papers, all with Polka dots. I had a sketch in my head and I knew I wanted to make a funny birthday card with those gorgeous birds from the NND Toucan Party set. I stamped 3 of them on a piece of Copic friendly paper and made masks for all of them. Then I masked them off and stamped the branches. I also applied a bit of Tumbled glass distress ink with a stencil brush in the background.
After removing the masks I coloured the toucans with Copic markers. I added glossy accent and some Spectrum Noir clear shimmer to some parts for more interest.
I die cut the word Bird-day from patterned paper (Neat and Tangled Journaling Alpha die) and adhered it to the panel. I stamped happy above it from a Neat and Tangled set (Cottontail Cuties).
For the theme I added blue polka dot patterned paper on the left side of the card and a thin strip of black and white polka dot paper for the contrast.
Some google eyes finished off this funny card.
I will upload this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.
Hope you like my card and will play along to be eligible to win the 20USD gift certificate to the Newton’s Nook Designs online store. You have until Friday 8th Sept to upload a Polka Dot themed card here.
See you soon with another card,
Have a great week,
