Planning for Fun with Echo Park

It’s time for another blog hop courtesy of Imagine, this time with an assist from Echo Park.

From the various collections I opted for the Creative Agenda kit and used a bit of this and that to put together this fun to-do list-inspired birthday card.

I used the Pennants die set to create a void in a piece of one of the patterned papers that was backed with some self-adhesive foam for dimension.

Then, on a sheet of white paper, I stamped the Circles acrylic stamp with Elderberry Memento ink, Dandelion Memento Luxe Ink, and the teal shade from the Tahiti Kaleidacolor ink pad applied randomly across the stamp with Ink Blushers.This became the background for the die cut sections in the front part of my card.

I decorated the card with stickers from the kit and a trimmed-out piece of a to-do list from one of the other Creative Agenda patterned papers. The list got a few check marks from the Creative Agenda Enamel Shapes and I did a fair amount of pen detailing with a Pitt Pen. I also sewed a bit of baker’s twine between the pennants to make it look more like a banner before matting the whole thing one a striped piece of patterned paper, also from the kit.

Once everything was secured, I filled in some of the circles in the background with StazOn Studio Glaze and Radiant Neon Amplify! to add a bit of dimension.
