how have you been? I am having a bad week. Stressful times at the office, lots of appointments, and caught my self some stupid ear infection that's bugging me. But it's almost the week-end, all will be well.
Today's card came together so easy, once I had started.
I started out by colouring several stamped images, because I was not in the mode for a complete card. Among them that funny armadillo. Since anything that is vaguely stripey sparks rainbow associations in my brain, I coloured his belt in a rainbow. I loved how that turned out, so I wanted to absolutely use that image.
I gave him his hill to ground him, with just a bit of ink blending. Then I wanted to do a colourful greeting. My go to for individual letters is this Alphabetical die. So I water coloured some pieces of paper and cut out the letters. The compete sentiment means "Motley Birthday greetings", which makes a lot more sense in German.
I also added a matching envelope with a paler version of the same image.
What I don't like about that card, is that I didn't think when cutting out the letters, that the same colours would end up right beside each other. I would have wanted that mixed up more. But when I realised it, I didn't want to do all the letters again, so I went with it.
Also I should have placed them slightly closer to the black sentiment.
Wishing you all a lovely day
