I made this card using the sketch at Just Add Ink, the inspiration pic at Just Us Girls and the Create your own Background theme at Seize the Birthday.
I decided to use the purple tones with the touch of yellow and orange from the inspiration picture as a watercolored background. So I white embossed the geometric background stamp onto watercolor paper and then after liberally wetting the panel, I dropped on various distress inks. I concentrated on the purple tones with accents of yellow and orange, just like the photo, being careful not to overlap the colors too much.
I cut the panel down and layered onto a black piece before adhering it to my Elegant Eggplant card base. The banners and circle were perfect for the sketch and I'd just received them as a freebie with my last order from My Favorite Things. I'm not too sure about the sentiment, but I had to look hard to find a big enough sentiment that still fit inside the circle.
Thanks for visiting.
