Every month I see the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge, and I think about entering. And then the next thing I know, the month is over and it's time for a new challenge, and then the cycle repeats itself. I finally managed to create a card for the challenge this month, and I may even do a second one, but I'm not making any promises. :)
The challenge is black and white with a pop of color. The color on my card doesn't pop as much in photos as it does in person, (Who knew mint would be so hard to photograph?) but I think you can see it a little better in the close up.
I started out by stamping a background using the Calico stamp set on Neenah Solar White cardstock. I rounded the corners and ran my black ink pad along the edges to help it stand out from the white on the card itself. I then die cut Happy Birthday from some mint cardstock and used a clear Spectrum Noir glitter marker all over it so it's super sparkly. That is a new-to-me marker and I really like it. I adhered the die cut to a vellum strip that I stapled with the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher. I finished the card with a couple sequins and droplets from Pretty Pink Posh.
That's all for now. Thanks for stopping by!
