Bright and bold

  So, on my last post I showed you a little bit of my works in progress.  I had a little bit of creative time this evening. When you are a busy mom you just have to squeeze in the creative time whenever you can get it. The rectangle piece that I did some color background wash the other day had dried now it was time to turn it into something. I decided it should to be an anniversary card because I can never fit the die cut letters for "anniversary" on a regular size card.  I had some black glitter fun foam that I was waiting to use on something that had a bright and bold background.
   I die cut my letters and placed them. I had a piece of lawn trimming that was blue, green, and white that came with my last lawn fawn order. (I thought it that was very sweet of them to package my stamps in a bundle and tie some trim around it that I was able to reuse later.) I also had Tim Holtz washi tape that I picked up on the clearance rack. (What can I say I love getting a good deal.) What I liked about this washi tape was when you put it on colored paper your can see the color through the letters printed on it. It was like the effect of looking through a frosted window. Then I applied my washi tape to somes scrap paper and die cut some little hearts and arrows from Lawn Fawn's Wish You Where Here set.  After I die cut them I peeled the scrap paper off the back and applied the washi tape shapes to my water  color piece. They need just a little something more to make them not blend into the back ground, so I decide to cover them with glossy accents to make them look like custom embellishments. I mounted my water color panel to some black card stock for a mat and cut and scored my card base.
Bright and bold challenge
Of course this was a great card for Simon Say Stamp Monday BOLD Challenge. So, wish me luck as I enter this card for their challenge. They also have a great new Stamp-tember release with all kinds of amazing products, that I would just love to try.
