Word Art Wednesday and The Male Room

This week at Word Art Wednesday it is Anything Goes.  The verse this week is "So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom".  

At the Male Room the challenge is Colours - to use Black, White and 1 pop of color. 

I focused on the word Number and the color cue to combine the two challenges into one card. The number pattern background stamp is from Hero Arts, it was very black, so to tone it down I placed a piece of heavy vellum over it and then layered my sentiment frame and balloons over the vellum.

Three more birthday cards to go this month.

Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. So striking Cat! LOVE those shiny, shiny balloons and the clever way you subdued the heavy background with thick vellum so as not to take away the focus on the main pieces! Clever design! Have a lovely day! Luv n’ Hugs. Hazel xx

  2. Very cool male card. I love the shiny balloons! I have that number stamp and do not use it nearly enough. Thanks for giving me an idea for it!

  3. Wow, those shiny blue balloons are awesome against the number background, Cat ... love that subtle look created with the vellum overlay! Hugs, Anita :)

  4. Great design & beautiful balloons!

  5. Love your bold balloons with your numbers on the background! Awesome take on the challenge, Cat!

  6. I think this is a super combination of challenges! I really like the graphic design of the number background and that lovely pop of metallic blue balloons. Super card! Thanks so much for playing in our Colour challenge at The Male Room. Deborah, DT.
