This month is my turn on Altair Art blog to host the monthly challenge, and since August is my birthday month (actualy - today!), I chose the theme of 'Celebrate', and kind of celebration:
Hop over to Altair Art blog to see the fab creations my fellow DT made for this challenge.
I made a birthday card, using the beautiful papers by Altair Art, but this time with some mixed media techniques.
I was inspired by the colors of the monthly challenge at Lindy's Gang blog:
So I went with this beautiful soft and subtle pallet. For my card I chose the colors of pink, purple and green.
I used my bigshot to cut the doily and then used embossing ink with Lindy's Weapping Willow Green ep to get this beautiful shiny subtle green color. I also die cut a circle using the same technique, for the center, and matted it with a circle cut out of Altair Art paper. I really love the shiny look it got!
I also die cut the flourishes and colored them with Lindy's Pop Rock Purple flat fabio spray.
The flower in the center was colored with Lindy's Chteau Rose flat spray and the center was colored with the Pop Rock Purple spary.
I used a beautiful pinky paper by Altair Art, both for the main rectangle, and the matting circle and the sentiment.
I heat embossed Kaisercraft stamp on the pinky paper with Lindy's Oom Pah Pah Pink ep, and splatterd some Lindy's Mad Hatter Mint shimmer spray and Chateau Rose spray.
The sentiment was heat embossed with Lindy's Weapping Willo Green ep and then stampped again with Ranger's ink, so it got a little shaddow.
For the final touch I used gauze, pink enamel dots and micro beads.
The Altair Art papers I've used are:
