The theme this week for the Less is More challenge is: repetition.
So for my card I took inspiration from Chrissie's card and adapted it to my style and supplies.
I used the Happy from Happy 3x4 by Simon Says Stamp and the Happy birthday from Sizzix (birthday by Stephanie Barnard). I stamped the black with Versafine on top of the rainbow made with Ranger Dye inks.
I used the MISTI and just moved the cardstock over a little and started in the middle with yellow as it's the lightest color.
I made a similar card a few weeks ago, without the MISTI and my stamping was a bit skewed and I used a smaller happy from the same set.
I made a mistake as I used the Misti vertically and had to rotate towards the end and reposition the stamp....Not sure it's better now lol...
few homemade enamel dots.
I adhered the cardpanel with foamtape.

These look great, Maaike! I love the rainbow effect of the repeated sentiment with the bold "birthday" overlapping. It looks so effective and really catches the eye. Nicely done!ReplyDelete

Fabulous card, great design and what's not to like about rainbow colours!ReplyDelete
Both of these look great, Maaike. I love the two-way orientation and the rainbow and black combo is always a winner.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing with us.
