Elizabeth Background Birthday Card I, II, and III

I recently purchased Simon Says Stamp Elizabeth Background Stamp.  It is a beautiful, detailed medallion stamp.  It was stamped three times onto Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock with VersaMark Onyx Black Ink and then heat embossed with Hero Arts Ultra Fine Clear Embossing Powder.

I decided to color the images with both Copic Markers and Spectrum Noir Markers.  You have to be very careful with coloring with alcohol markers on images with embossing powder since can ruin the nibs of the markers.

This first image was stamped with Copic Markers: Y00, Y04, Y06 / YG51, YG53, G94 / RV11, RV13, RV14 / R39, RV69 / BG18, BG15 / G46, G29.  Once the coloring was completed it was die cut using a My Favorite Things Wonky Rectangle.  Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock was cut 1/8” larger and adhered to the back of the focal image with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was die cut with the same rectangle die and adhered to the back of the focal image.

The sentiment is from Gina K. Designs Grand Greetings and was stamped on a strip of Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder.  3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back and then the sentiment was adhered to the lower rectangle of the focal image panel.

The focal image panel was adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

VThis second card made with Simon Says Stamp Elizabeth Background Stamp was colored with Spectrum Noir Markers: IG1, IG2 / DR1, DR5 / PP3, PP5 / CG2, DG3 / TB3.  This time the focal image was die cut using a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle.  Everything else with the card was assembled the same as the last one.
