Celebrating You

Hello Everyone,

Today's card is a try at a new technique. This one is for a crafty friend's birthday. Crafty friends are the best as they would not just look at the end result but also appreciate the efforts you put in to create something. Hope my friend likes my attempt at trying something different. So here is my attempt at a no line colouring card.

This is a A2 size card. However the front panel is  little smaller in size. I cut it such that there is some white space visible at the borders. I stamped the images in a very light shade of distress ink Then I coloured the images with Zig Markers. I further masked these coloured images with post it notes and coloured the background with distress ink and splattered some water on the background. I also splattered some black colour with a paint brush to add interest to the background. Then I stamped the sentiment in black ink. I finished the card with adding some golden sequins and adhering the card front to the card base.
Hope you like my attempt at no line colouring. Supplies are listed at the end.
