Birthday Cards

I was asked to make two 50th birthday cards and the only info I had was female, New York, Venice, Madrid, Las Vegas etc, so I lightly brayered DecoArt multi surface satin true blue and flamingo onto white card. Once dry, I took my TH ticket and Creative Expressions word stamp of place names, including New York and Madrid along with quite a few others and stamped in versamark and embossed with black embossing powder to create the background.

Next I stamped lots of Dina images onto different backgrounds of paper to see how I could use them and this is what I ended up with. The images are outlined in black pen.

And this is what I did for the second one, stamped another of Dina images several times on different backgrounds and played around with them.

The other part of the brief was to make them the same but with subtle differences, what do you think? The person who asked me to make them hasn't seen them yet, so no idea what she was expecting or if these hit the mark or not!!

PaperArtsy have a theme of typography, fonts and quotes this week, so I'm entering the cards.

I think these are really good Sam, all these stamps are working so well together, and it was a very challenging brief!

What a difficult task with so few clues... I think the cards look very cool and you followed the brief so no one can complain!
