Hey stamping friends! Have you checked out this month’s Mix It Up Challenge at SugarPea Designs yet? This challenge is so much fun, because not only can you use the inspiration photo, or the sketch, or both, but there’s a $50 gift certificate to the SugarPea Designs store up for grabs too! Here’s the challenge:
How yummy does that inspiration photo look? Mmmmm. As soon as I saw the picture I thought of the bokeh technique to resemble the dots on the strawberries! I began by applying Distress Oxide Inks to watercolor paper in Candied Apple, Mermaid Lagoon and Squeezed Lemonade. Have you tried the Distress Oxide Inks yet? They’re so creamy and blend together flawlessly, plus the colors are so vibrant! I love them! Next, I have a piece of acetate that I punched various sizes of circles out. I placed it at random spots on my background and applied white opaque ink with a sponge dauber. This was a super simple way to create a fun birthday card!
Here are the SugarPea Designs supplies I used to complete my card:
