Amazing Birthday

Hi Everyone,

I actually made this card for last weeks Less is More challenge (it was dimension) - just to find out Mr. Linky was expired.....but to my great delight Less is More for this week has OMBRE as its theme - how perfect is that?!


Believe it or not, but this card is perfectly flat - I just exaggerated the 3-D effect with my colors. I first stenciled on white paper and added clear embossing paste. After the paste was dry I sponged with different (mainly darker) colors over the white grid lines. The embossing paste resists the additional sponged colors. If you want to make something like it - go to iStencil and check out their amazing selection of stencils. The one I used, you can find HERE or HERE

49-00005 R

The die is by STAMPlorations and the little birthday stamp is by Papertrey

Now that was lucky with the LIM challenge. Just fabulous colouring and colours. Great technique with the clear embossing paste as a slight resist. Also love how you've angled the black die cut sentiment to emphasize the underneath of the sphere. Clever and fun x

You have a unique talent for creating three-dimensional cards !! Every time I look with amazement how it is possible :-) I have this template, but I did not dare to use it keeping in mind your achievements.
