Mystery Background Birthday Card

While browsing Facebook I came across an amazingly fun color combo that Allison Okamitsu came up with! I told her I would give it a go. She told me it would make creative genius happen! I don’t know all about that but I did have fun while creating this card! This new Lemon Lime Twist is such a fun party color! I’m out of some of the cardstocks so I hope to give it another go once I order more!

These colors are just gorgeous together and alone! I tried using Watercolor Wings with doing this technique but it didn’t work like I wanted it to. What technique am I talking about? I watercolored with the three party colors then clear heat embossed the stamped  images on top of it. Then you take a black ink over top of it all. 😳 Yep rub your black ink pad on top of all of that work! Then use a paper towel to buff ink in a little as well as wiping it off the embossed area. It’s a little scary but the end result is so much fun!

I watercolored my background so the colors are not as vibrant but I still loved how it turned out! I didn’t have any Melon Mambo cardstocks 😕 So I just inked up a piece of white and trimmered it up. The Lemon Lime Twist designer series paper is from the new Eastern Palace suite.

I love adding bling and dimension to my card! It’s not complete with out it right?  I also decided to add some white gel pen stitching on the outer edge of the black. Don’t be afraid to give your ideas a try. Sometimes they work and other times they don’t but you will always learn something new from trying!

If you give this color combo a try I would love to see it and I know Allison would too! Feel free to share your creations in the comments or share on Instagram with the hashtags #hopecardchallenge and #nicepeoplestamp
