Look at these fun tropical colours the Waltzingmouse Fanatics chose for us this fortnight! Love those little birdies.
Here's my card, featuring Nordic Spring and Big Day - Today stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps:
The really fun part of this card, besides the RIOT of colour, is the faux enamel dots technique. They have been popping up all over, but I have not seen any in my local stores. Lindsay, the Frugal Crafter, to the rescue. Her video on her blog shows how to make these fake-aroos out of paper and embossing powder (two things we all have on hand). The neat thing with this technique is your dots will always perfectly match your paper.
I am needing a lot of birthday cards all of a sudden, so this is also being entered in the current Seize the Birthday challenge which asks for flowers (note the tulip border). Thanks for stopping by. Let me know if you try this technique.
