Anyway, I received the new Big Day stamp set from Stampin' Up! It's a new saleabration stamp set and I just love the images. I thought this stamp set would go great with a chalkboard type effect.
I also liked the retrosketches design #146 so I decided to make a card using this technique and this sketch. Easy Peasy!
Here is my card. I decided to make a regular sized card rather than a square card.
The main image was stamped with Versamark onto basic black cardstock and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then I took Blendabilities and colored in the images. I used Old Olive (lightest one), Pink Pirouette (new color available with the 2015 Occasions Catalog), Soft Sky (another new color), Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight.
Once this was colored I mounted it onto a piece of Pumpkin Pie Designer Series Paper from the Brights DSP pack and then mounted that onto a piece of Pear Pizzaz cardstock.
I stamped the cake image onto whisper white cardstock and colored it in using the same blendabilities colors as I used to color the main image. The cake was fussy cut and mounted to the card front.
I love the color combination of this card. It's bright and cheery. Perfect for a January Birthday!
Happy day to you!
