AAA Birthday Challenge January: Two favorite colors

To celebrate the New Year, new beginnings and new blog colours AAA Birthday and AAA Cards are having a micro blog hop.

Fancy winning a £10 spend at an online store of your choice or a second prize of a mystery parcel? Then play along like this:

1. Comment on both AAA Birthday and AAA Cards first 2022 challenge post.

2. For two extra entries into the draw enter a different card at each of the first 2022 challenges.

To accommodate the different timings of the two challenges the Micro Hop will begin at 8.00am UK time on Sunday 9th January and close at 23.55 UK time on Saturday 22nd January.

You can of course enter cards at AAA Birthday before and after  those dates, but they will not be a part of the prize draw.

 This month the challenge is to use your two favorite colors, now mine are not a secret, I love purple and pink, so I used wilted Violet and Picked Raspberry from Distress inks through a stencil.

The stencil is from Carlijn design and I applied the color from the lower right side, so to create a shiny spot on top. Any stencil brand will do of course and you can make your own with a die set if  you want.

The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp (Birthday Balloons) There's solid balloons in the set , but I felt they were a little small.

I would have used more colors, like

the rainbow if it weren't for the challenge, as much as I like these colors, I'm not sure there's enough distinction between the balloons.

I splattered with Shimmer Spritz for a bit of shine,

  1. Well I think the balloons look stunning in just these two colours. The way you've shaded them makes each balloon pop and I love your card.
