Happy Birthday, Jasmine - how wonderful to be a brand new teenager - what a special time of your life. Jasmine is creative, energetic, enquiring and an avid reader, so the card I made for her reflects the reading aspect of her nature. I found the tutorial for this card on Diane Noble's blog, and this is my effort. Jasmine's favourite colour is purple, and the insert on the front can be a book mark - she was pretty delighted with it, as was I, as I think the layout was so neat. TFS Dianne!
My card today is a stamp of a silhouette - and I read a great tip - when stamping silhouettes, you can stamp on designer paper to instantly create a vintage look. The author of this tip is cathymac - amongst other things she creates for Sweet n' Sassy. Anyway, I thought this was a great idea and tried my hand at it, using a silhouette image from Gina K's Tropical Flowers set. Here is my finished card. I used memento markers spritzed with water to stamp directly on to the designer paper, and then coordinated the resultant lime and orange with aqua matting. I like how soft the result is and will try it again with different colour combinations. Now if there is a challenge somewhere to use mustard and aqua, I'll be ready! lol! Hope you like it!
