Happy first birthday, ladies! The design team over at W&W is so talented, and each gal has created a challenge. I actually only intended to participate in four (cuz I would LOVE to join them as guest designer!!!) but my mojo took over...
The first to catch my eye was Lea's mood board.
The next was the light and airy collage put together by Laura.
That mint blanket also spoke "baby" to me (we have a couple coming soon in the 'hood) and I just love the abundance of white space with a tiny touch of black, so this is what I created. I used The Big, Bold and Blessings, The Big, Bold and Happy and Big Bang Confetti on this one. TIP: for a great effect include the secondary sentiment on a snippet of contrasting CS in conjunction with the big script sentiments, which in this case I heat embossed onto vellum and fussy cut.
A somewhat gradient mint BG created by applying DI to an acrylic block, spritzing with water and then stamping. TIP: If you let the DI air dry rather than using your heat gun, the result is much smoother and less splotchy. Silver embossing and silver washi tape. Blue on the circle holding the "a" and for the non-embossed portion of the sentiment. For this card I also needed some words from The Big, Bold and Extras.
I'm off to enter these fun challenges too:
Virginia's View - #11 Clean Slate
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Old and New (old tissue paper combined with new Little B rocking horse die) on the first baby card!
And since the Little B die is new, I'm going over to the playhouse and Darnell's NBUS challenge.
Whew. Thanks for coming by today. Does one of these cards strike your fancy? Speaking of which, Kelly G. prompted me to do a Top Ten of 2014 post, so watch for that this weekend...
