Happy Birthday!


Second post for today. I had sometime to play for this week's Make It Monday challenge at Papertrey Ink. Here is the link to the challenge and video- It is called Layered Background with Sentiment Stamps.

Here is my take on the challenge. I took a modern approach to the technique shown by Betsy.


 I used stamps from PTI's Big Bold Wishes and Inside Out Birthday to stamp the background using half strength grey ink layered with full strength grey for Mums flowers from Year of flowers collection also from Papertrey Ink. I then cut out a colored version of Mums flowers to add a pop of color to the monochromatic background. Rhinestones for bling.  Love how it turned out. Hope you like it too :)
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Wednesday :)

Luv!
Pin It

Ok Gayatri, tell me we dont share our brain or something..this is freakky..coz when I saw the MIM video this week I decided to use a the rose from "year of flowers" to create a background with it and stamp sentiments beneath it and around it!!! the card i envisioned is a bit different but girl, this is pretty similar to what I thought!

Elena said...

oh wow! love how you used more of a text images, rather than just one-liner sentiments to create the background. And how you highlighted a few of the mums with color is so beautiful.
