Bold + Bright | Let's Celebrate with Gayatri

Hello everyone,

Gayatri here today.   I am sharing a bright and bold card made using the negatives from Cover Model: Multifaceted Cutaway.

My concept of a bright and bold is to use lots of vibrant colours with plenty of contrast. Plus I wanted to use a technique or two on my card. So I started with sponging and blending distress inks to make a rainbow coloured panel. I sprayed clear shimmer all over the panel. Once dry, I adhered the panel to double sided adhesive sheet and then die cut the panel using the Cover Model: Multifaceted Cutaway. Now I have the die cut and its negatives stickers. On my card base, I used the positive multifaceted die cut as my guide to stick my negatives back inside. I stuck the negative pieces all in place up to a quarter of the way, then randomly, spacing out the end. I then removed the positive die cut which I used as the guide. I am left with the negative pieces in rainbow colours as though the pieces are falling like confetti. Love the bright colours and contrast against the white background.

To add more contrast, I white heat embossed the sentiment from The Party stamp set on a piece of black cardstock. I then adhered this sentiment strip on the card front using foam adhesives with some bunched up thread under it. Finally embellishing with Pretty Pink Posh Sparkly Clear sequins.
