Celebrate with W & W

Hi friends,
I am blogging after a long break since my mojo had gone for a break as well..But the iNSD day challenges hosted at the W & W blog in collaboration with the Pink Fresh Studio really got me going and I have a card to share today !! YAY !!

Here is the card which I made for the Sketch challenge.

And here's a look at the sketch on which it is based :

iNSD 2015 Card Sketch Challenge

I'm also entering this card in the 'Make your own background' challenge at Winnie and Walter &

To make this card, I first mixed and matched my sentiments from the W & W 'Party' stamp set and lined it up diagonally on my block, inked it with various shades of HA inks and did repeated stamping. I stamped and embossed the cake from the W & W 'Sugar Rush' set and did some loose watercoloring on the background as well as on the cake. I wanted to have a soft look to it, rather than proper shading so I just swiped a brush with clean water over the watercolor paper and then dropped it my different colors. I have used Squeezed Lemonade, Peacock Feathers and Shabby Shutters Distress inks. Then, I die cut the cake image using a circle die and mounted it on foam dots. Scattered a few die cut stars and stamped in my main sentiment to finish off my card.

Supplies used :
Paper- Fabriano Watercolor Brustro, Campap White, DCWV Glitzy Glitter Matstack.
Dies- Mama Elephant Confetti die, Spellbinders Standard Circles die, Paper Smooches Dots and Dashes border dies.
Stamps- Winnie and Walter It's a Party stamp, Winnie and Walter Sugar Rush stamp, Hero Arts Find Joy set.
Inks- Hero Arts Orange Soda, Butter Bar, Hero Arts Mid Tone Fresh Peach Shadow ink, Hero Arts Soft Apricot Shadow ink, Versafine Onyx Black, Distress inks -Squeezed Lemonade, Peacock Feathers and Shabby Shutters.
Ranger Super Fine Clear Embossing powder.

I hope you like my card. Please leave me your feedback as I love to hear from you!!
Have a nice day everyone.!
