winnie walter hi birthday girl

Had to give it a go when I saw this color combo at Winnie and Walter's June color challenge.


"Tactile" was all I could think. How about rows of satin adhered to cardstock and die cut with that In a Word "hi"? In the end, laziness won out, but tactile remains in the form of  Simply Graphic die cuts popping off the page. And a nod to the black lines with some hint of woodgrain from Scenery: Into the Woods to ground the "hi".


Can you guess how I "colored" those leaves? Grabbed some pink, turquoise, yellow and olive Adirondack inks - I still love the vibrancy of these inks - and stamped sentiments from Sentimental Winter with them and spritzed with Perfect Pearl/water mix to get a little ink bleed before die cutting the leaves! Who cares if they read "sparkle and shine" and "happy new year" and "tidings of comfort and joy"? You can't really decipher them!


I'm playing at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge where it's Anything Goes this week. CU there ;)
