It's Time to Party! Flamingo and balloons DL card -
Day 108 of my 366 day challenge
Hi Craft Addicts!
i chose this topper as it is so much fun and thought it went very well with the background that I had hand coloured using a variety of ink pads.
I took a pre-cut piece of A6 white linen cardstock and coloured it using both Tim Holtz Distress, Papermania and Altenew dye based ink pads (pinks, yellow, greens and orange) merging them in together so it created a really lovely background - the linen effect gives it a great texture too. I then trimmed it slightly and glued it to some of Lynda Chapman's black card.
I looked at a variety of the toppers in the "Bigger Book of Toppers" - Birthdays and chose one of the flamingo images as I thought the colours co-ordinated with the background quite well. I added some foam pads to it and placed it in the centre of the background so it gave it some dimension.
I also used a topper (from another Hunkydory collection) "It's Time to Party!" as I think they worked together well (I backed it on some black card so it matched the main topper and again used some foam pads to raise it up.
I then used some pink and gold Nuvo crystal drops to add some embellishments to the top and bottom of the card.
I haven't added a message inside as I think that can be done "to order".
