Bold and Bright

Many times, while looking for inspiration I browse online galleries to look at the work of others. I came across this card, which I thought was adorable and used as inspiration for today's card.


I rarely use my Bold Brights color family but I love the bright, cheerful look of this card! I started with a Whisper White card base, topped with Pixie Pink and then another layer of Whisper White. My image from Its a Stretch was stamped in Basic Black on Whisper White and colored using a blender pen and my ink pads. (See my tutorial here.)

I ran some scraps of Pixie Pink, Only Orange, and Yoyo Yellow through my Big Shot with the Small Dots Texturz Plate from Backgrounds 1. I then punched our circle with my 1 3/8" and 1/2" circle punches and glued them to my Whisper White to create a fun pattern. (I tried my best to show the texture of the circles but had difficulty getting it to show up in the pictures, sorry!)


Super cute, right?
