Birthday Window

Purple – Blue – Green

Considering this mood board features my favourite colours one would think I would be totally inspired to make a card. I must have been tired yesterday (bad night) because none of my ideas worked and in the end I compromised with this card. I am honestly not sure it is good enough for the challenge, but decided to add it anyway as I like it better today than I did when I finished it yesterday. The background piece was done by smooshing into wet ink and as an experiment I added a bit of gold using the foundry wax. While that worked I didn’t like the result much so decided to cover up most of the gold bits. The stamp sets used are from Penny Black and one from Inspired by Stamping and the sentiment is a die cut. I coloured the images with Inktense pencils and distress inks. The window is a die I’ve used recently, cut from a store bought card and was on my desk so I popped it up over the top of the other images with the sentiment below. Thanks for looking and have a great day.

    1. The butterfly is from a Penny Black set and I too think it is a pretty one. Glad you like this effort – it is growing on me after reading all the comments. Thanks so much.


    1. Thanks so much Lisa. I like it much better myself and this is often the case after a few days. I think we get too close to our work and can’t see it objectively.


    1. Thanks my friend. I do appreciate that you like it and it gives me a lot of confidence after reading all the comments.


  1. Oh it’s good enough, even better than good enough. Love the pretty and colorful background and that awesome window die, looks great! We are our worst critics, that’s for sure! Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Double D, Purple-Blue-Green Challenge. Donna, DT Member.
