Art Neko Birthday Card

Today my card is for the color challenge on 

Here you see the inspiration for the card.

For my card I used Art Neko stamps
Forget Me Not background stamp
Love Birds stamp
Happy Birthday sentiment

The background is stamped on white paper with versamark and
embossed with clear embossing. Next the red color is added
and the embossing powder works as a resist. With a soft cloth
I cleaned off the ink from the flowers.

Next I stamped the Love Birds in black on a seperate piece 
of paper and added the sentiment. Then I cut it out and glued it to
a piece of black paper and cut it out again with a border.
After adding the ribbon around the background, the birds 
were added with foam tape on top.
After making the card for the challenge, I made some other card
and noticed I still used the same colors. It is a wonderful
color combination.

Thanks for looking
and have a creative day!

Wonderful cards Hetty - I love that second one in particular - the movement in the image of the woman is wonderful, and you have really made her the focal point of the card.

Your Art Neko birds are striking, especially surrounded by the floral background! Your dancing girl: so pretty! Love the kraft and red/white polka dots! So thrilled you shared your carmine-black-red designs in the Cupcakes Inspiration gallery!
