I've got a Birthday Boy in my house this weekend!
So I have a card showcasing some Colour Blast Paste and Embossing Powder.
I have plans for this card so what you are seeing today is Step One.
I went with a Vibrant Blue Card base.
Something a little different but I wanted contrast.
(Remember I have Plans)
I chose the Steel and Snow White Colour Paste.
Working around the edge of the card I used Steel and in the middle used the Snow White graduating it out.
I wanted to create a brightness in the centre.
Next I got the Dusty Charcoal and a Lollypop Stick.
I used this to freehand draw my circles.
I LOVE the Snow White embossing Powder and used this with a cloud white Chalk Ink to Emboss my chipboard "9" and the tail of my Wood Flag.
I did this in 2 Layers to get a stronger coverage.
This is also a good technique to use when layering colours to customise your tones.
I embellished this one using all off-cuts from previous projects.
Cards are a great opportunity to use up all those goodies we just cant seem to part with after we have completed our layout.
I left the chipboard (Also Off-cuts) Raw.
I liked the texture is added this way.
I like to personalise my cards inside and I'm going to keep that secret just till the Birthday Boy see's it.
I look forward to showing you where this card ends up........
I hope you all have a wonderful Scrapping weekend
A very Happy Mothers Day to all the Mummy's out there...
