Hey there! Thanks for visiting today. It’s time for another card for the collaboration between Doodles Paper Playground and A Colorful Life Designs today. I really wanted to use the new Happy Combo Sparkle Blend and I knew I had a lot of backgrounds I made some time ago, so I looked through them to see if any worked.
I came across this background that uses the 6″ x 9″ Mum Mat stencil. I had ink blended Ripe Persimmon, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxides on to Smooth Bristol Cardstock. It helps to keep lists of the colors you’ve used on the backs so you know what you used! I had inked up the stencil with Barn Door for a different background, so for this piece, I had sprayed the stencil and placed it on the panel. I rubbed it down and was left with the positive image of the stencil. These colors worked perfectly with the Happy Combo Sparkle Blend.
This adorable Blend has little fries, onions, burgers, and tomatoes, so I dug out a really old (discontinued) stamp set that has the cutest little fast food stamps. I colored them with Zigs and fussy cut them. I glued them underneath my acetate so that the sequins can fall on top of them. I really like the color combination of this Blend. On my card base, I inked Scattered Straw and Mustard Seed Distress Ink with a Brayer.
This combo is just as fun as the collaboration between A Colorful Life Designs and Doodles Paper Playground. And there’s still more to come!
