Birthday theme challenge at Stamp With Us

Our challenge today over at Stamp With Us is to create something to meet a:

birthday theme

I decided to go with some bright and bold colours to show that you don't have to stick with vintage colours or the distressed look when using the Vintage Vogue set.

Stamp Sets: Vintage Vogue, Oval All, Very Vintage
Cardstock: Summer Sun, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
Ink: Summer Sun, Taken With Teal, Stampin' Pastels
Punches: Scallop Oval, Large Oval
Other: Circle Fire Rhinestone Brads

I rolled the Very Vintage wheel at a diagonal using my Wheel Guide to roll again and complete the top corner. The flowers were made using the rock and roll technique ie. inking the stamp with one colour and then rolling the edges of the stamp on another (contrasting or complementary) inkpad. The Tempting Turquoise turns green when mixed with the Summer Sun and I kept these flowers for the bottom petals so that they'd be more leaf-like. To have more of the Turquoise colour come through, I first inked with Summer Sun, rolled off some of the ink onto scrap paper then rolled onto Tempting Turquoise before finally stamping. The small flowers were just stamped with Tempting Turquoise ink. All were cut out and I shaped the petals before layering and securing with a Rhinestone Brad. The sentiment was stamped in Turqouise, coloured with a Summer Sun marker and then chalked around the edges with Summer Sun.

Please go take a look at the other wonderful creations made by the Design Team.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
