Hey there! I'm on the Mama Elephant blog this morning, with this card:
I started out by creating my card base, simply stamping the triangle pattern from on point borders to cover the entire area. I sponged around the edges in a dark grey ink and set it aside (I can't help it, everything looks unfinished to me without sponged edges. Is there a support group for that?)
Then, I set about creating my focal panel. I used post-it strips to create a random geometric pattern, and sponged on different colors, really working them in to make sure that I got saturated color. I wanted the colors to really pop in contrast to the black and white card base.
Then, using sketchy letters, I spelled out "you are" to compliment the wonderful script font of the everyday greeting sentiment. I overlapped them a little, so that they looked like one cohesive unit.
I didn't want the whole card to be flat, so I cut out a "smile" speech bubble and popped it up over the sentiments. In passing, the speech bubble die from just hatched matches the hello speech bubble from everyday greetings, but not this smile one (which is facing the opposite direction.)
I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!
