How exquisite are those colors? Absolutely gorgeous. I had a technique in mind involving embossing powder so I was limited to colors I have, but this is what I came up with.
Stamped a few elements from STAMPlorations Mixed Media Elements on my creme cardbase. Laid down the ARTplorations Honeycomb Delight Reversed and applied clear embossing paste. Removed the stencil and sprinkled brown, copper and teal embossing powders onto the wet paste.
I hit it with a heat gun which caused the powder AND paste to melt a bit leaving a nice bumpy texture. Perfect since I'm playing at the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge where it's about Texture this month.
Then I die cut words from Essentials by Ellen Merry and Bright from woodgrain and glitter papers and used the positive of "be" and the negative of "happy" layered onto a swatch of vellum for my sentiment. Inside reads "it's your birthday".
Cool colors. Lotsa texture. Another card for the guy stash! Thanks for visiting today.
I'm also joining in at Ingrid's Mixed Media World for challenge #9 "Anything Goes".
