Becca's Birthday Bash Link-Up

Happy Tuesday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! I'm posting two days in a row - woohoo!! I had to find time in my craft room to participate in my sweet friend Becca of The Damsel of Distressed Cards Birthday Bash celebration!!


Becca has a mood board of her favorite things (see below). I tried to incorporate as many as I could into these cards (except clean and simple cards - ha!! What's that??!! :)


I started with Becca's favorite color pallet of purple and teal...though my teal is a little more blue. I used Distress Inks in Dusty Concorde and Mermaid Lagoon (maybe I should have used Peacock Feathers for a more teal look...hindsight...) She loves polka-dots and I tried to incorporate several different sizes here. She also loves typography, so I used two of my very favorite My Creative Time sentiment stamps and heat embossed them with white embossing powder.


She loves distressed, vintage cards full of texture. I added texture with Wendy Vecchi Crackled Texture Paste through a Crafter's Workshop Punchinella stencil and distressed the edges with a Zutter DIA. The edges were then inked with Walnut Distress Ink.


I am entering these in the following challenges:

1. Becca's Birthday Bash - Linky/Mood Board (see below)
2. DL.ART - July Linky
3. Little Scrap Pieces - Show it Off Saturday
4. Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - I scream for... (Ink)


Happy birthday, Becca!! Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great week :)

  8. Holy mother of pearl Lisa, this might be the most gorgeous card set I have ever seen! I am so in love with these colours together, wowsers, what a brilliant, vibrant, summery palette!! The laces and flowers just add an extra soft touch, which is the perfect compliment to the crackled texture background!! Dusty Concord and Mermaid Lagoon, mental note on that one!! PINNED and PINNED again!! You never fail to disappoint me with your talent! hugs :)

  9. Wow! I am loving these two cards Lisa! I think you have hit the nail on the head with all the things that Becca loves! Your color combo is beautiful, I love the way you have used MCT's products, the distressing, inking and texture paste is fabulous. You have your signature mark on both of these cards and as always they are stunning!! I'd say job well done! Hugs, Brenda

  10. I was reading through the comments and Donna said, "Becca is going to flip when she sees these cards". I think that is incredibly accurate! Two somersaults and an attempted cartwheel - I must now go see the doctor. ;) Seriously, though ---- to echo Pamellia -- HOLY MOTHER OF PEARL! These are stunning, incredible, amazing, divine, perfect and all the other good adjectives! I love that you combined almost every element and I think that blue definitely counts as tealy. :) THANK YOU for being such an amazing friend and helping me to celebrate my birthday!
