Today also marks a new challenge over at The Card Concept. If you've been reading a while you'll probably guess that aqua plus just about any other color is my favorite combination. So when I saw the fabulous aqua and lime inspiration, my fingers itching to get inky. I was inspired to get out my distress inks, since I've been watching all sorts of videos on the new Distress Oxide inks. I don't have any of the new ones yet, but had a whole lot of fun splishing and a splashing with the originals and a few Altenew colors mixed in too.
Poppy Birthday on. I cut them with the coordinating Build a Poppy Die Set, then added some black Enamel Accents to the centers. I really love that deep, glossy look. So fabulous! The sentiment is stamped on white cardstock and then I layered everything together adding in a Prima leaf behind the poppies, then accenting with some self-adhesive pearls.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you're inspired to give The Card Concept challenge a go. Hop on over to their blog to see the beautiful creations the rest of the designers are sharing today.
