Birthday Layout ~ Color Dare 319


Here's another monochromatic challenge for you but in blue this time. Use whatever blues you like to create a paper craft to share with us at Color My Heart Color Dare.

I decided to make a layout for my grandson's birthday. It's not until next month so this makes me ahead of schedule for a change. LOL

My Colors are Carolina and Sapphire with a touch of Linen. It's a simple design dressed up with fun details like the paper patter, cupcakes, texture paste, etc. I used Glossy Transaprent Texture Paste on the cupcake frosting. I mixed in two a couple drops of reinker for a nice shiny color matched finish. the strips of blue on the photo mats has a line of x's from a thin cuts die. I also kept the x's going with some doodling around the outside edge.

  1. Great layout! I love the cupcakes with the texture paste and that there are seven!

  2. Everything is arranged so neatly, I never seem to get things as level and tidy as that! Lovely job and nice use of colors.

Fun Cards!

I've been having so much fun with the Spotlight on Nature stamp set and Dies I just had to share my 2 latest cards. Both cards were easy...
