Colourful House Of Cards

    A new month means a new challenge at the House Of Cards, this time our theme is birthday and/or the colour swatch.
     I wanted to try and get the strips of colour down my card like the ones in the photo, so I raided my stencil stash and found a bubble one by Dutch Doobadoo that was just right.
     Then came the colours, no ones that I would go for normally but that's what a challenge is all about so Distress Oxides to the rescue. Using a finger dauber I coloured the strips of bubbles, making sure not to cross contaminate the colours.
     The letters are die cut in dark brown pearl card, using a narrow ruler for a guide I stuck them on to fit diagonally across the card. I also had a search through my gems and accents draw and came up with some enamel accents that almost match the inks, a few placed here and there and the front panel was complete.
     The panel has a narrow mat layer in the same dark brown card as the letters, stuck on to a white card blank and all was finished.
     Please come and join us at the House Of Cards with your birthday themed cards, just use the photo and/or the colour swatch to get you started.
