HAVE A SPECIAL BIRTHDAY

This cute image from La-La Land Crafts Sweetheart was stamped with VersaFine Black Ink on Canson XL 140# Watercolor Paper and embossed with Hero Arts Ultra Fine Clear Embossing Powder.  I’ve heard Jennifer McGuire talking about stamping images before hand and coloring them while on the go and decided to give it a try.  I took my Tombo Dual Brush Markers, along with a Sukura Watercolor Pen, with me while I waited to have my car services.  It was amazing how much I was able to get done.

The reciepient of this card had long blond hair and her favorite color is mint green, so the colors used were as follows: 245 Sap Green, 885 Warm Red, N567 Warm Grey 5, 025 Light Orange, 026 Golden Yellow, 020 Peach, 942 Tan.

Once I was home I die cut the image using second largest Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Stackable Rectangles and then added some Darice Sticky Back Foam to the back to add dimension.  A rectangle of mint green polka dot paper from My Mind’s Eye Happy Day 6×6 Paper Pad was die cut using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangled and adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Elmer’s Dot Runner Adhesive.  The focal image panel was then adhered using Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps Party Mini Letter Seals and was stamped with VersaFine Black Ink and heat embossed with Hero Arts Ultra FiClne ear Embossing Powder.  Sizzix Stephanie Barnard Word Labels was used to die cut the sentiment.  The edges were ink blended using an ink dauber and Distress Pistascio ink.  3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back to add dimension and adhered to the bottom right of the focal image and the card was done.
