That Kaleidoscope background stamp came to my aid again today. I made two cards with the same design, however with variations a la Shay's challenge for WCMD over at Winnie and Walter. I used the Cutaway Hi die for both.
Here's the first, feminine and floral version. Some sloppy watercoloring to mimic roses. Stamped "birthday girl" on the inside.
And then a masculine version. Kept the embossing tone on tone and used a striped PP for the dimensional die cut. Stamped "birthday boy" on the inside.
Amazing how colors and techniques can make such a difference in the same design! Fun stuff. Great idea for a challenge, Shay.
