“Any Thing Goes”, don’t you just love those kind of challenges? Well, we at NJC (Not Just Cards) have just your kind of challenge for February 2019. Our challenges are just for fun (every once in a while we do have a sponsor). We do pick our “Top Three” for that month. We want to see just about anything your heart desires to create, be it cards, journal, journal pages, mixed media, collage, and/or any other mediums for your art. Beginning today you have 26 days to join us for our NJC February 2019 ATG challenge.Today I have my latest ATG card project for you. Lets get started…
This “Happy Birthday” card was completed with Waffle Flower’s Magnolia stamps. I am a sucker for floral images and this one hit that button. I used a mix of watercolor markers from Kuratake Zig, Tombow, and Arteza. I love all three brands! I have not met a watercolor I did not like. (Affiliated links are being used.) In the photos above the I have completed all the coloring. For the Magnolia flowers I watercolored all blooms with a combination of Kuretake Zig 027 Dark Pink and Arteza Wine Red 182. I used Arteza’s Red Wine for depth. For all the leaves I used Tombow’s 177 and 192 greens.
Now is the time for assembly. Above I die cut all my watercolored images. My background was completed with watercolor spatters of the dark pink, wine red, and added Zig’s Black 010. I stamped the happy birthday sentiment on that panel. Before I started the final layout I layered the spattered background with Gina K Design’s 100# Black and Passionate Pink cardstocks. These layers were then secured with adhesive onto my 120# Gina K Designs White card base. The second photo is the finished layout showing you the dimension.
The finished 5.5″ card. I hope you like it. I would love to hear what you have to say about it in the comments.
I hope you join us at NJC for our February 2019 challenge.
