What fun this was! New set from CTMH, my first use. I will be using this more. Sometimes it is hard to make a birthday card for someone--not always knowing their likes and dislikes. For instance my Sunday School class-You ROCK Bridgebuilders!!
I am actually thinking of trying to make this for s "man" card using browns, blacks and tans and leaving off the flowers on top. What do you think?
I stamped the image in a light Hollyhock ink from CTMH. Then used CTMH markers and Marvy markers to color it in. After it dried I drug the edges through and along the Hollyhock ink pad. Next, I added Diamond Glaze to two layers of the cake and also covered the plate and allowed to dry.
Stamp the pink cardstock with a small flower to give depth in the Hollyhock ink. I attached the cake to an extra piece of green patterned paper and then attached all to the pink stamped cardstock. Add a pink gingham checked ribbon from CTMH and you are done.
The stamp set includes a couple of sayings which I used on the inside. I added white paper to the inside and stamped in Hollyhock ink: You're the Sweetest Thing Happy Birthday
Love my new stamps that I purchased from VLVS. The three stamps are all Oriental and this is the first one I have used.
For the card base I used my Cuttlebug to emboss vines and birds to compliment the little girl holding the bird. On white paper I stamped the child with my Staz-On black ink.
Colored the images with markers from Marvy. I stamped the image once again to create a mask and cut out. I added Zig glue to the back of the mask and allowed it to dry. By covering up the colored image I was able to use another stamp of flowers by Stampin Up to create a background. Then colored the flowers in lightly to compliment the child. I used an additional unknown designer stamp in oriental nature to add small images to the open areas and used a sponge to highlight the borders. Glued the finished image to a piece of the same colored paper allowing about a 1/16 th border around it. Then glued this to the embossed card base. Added a multi colored ribbon making a double bow so that it appears to look like a dragonfly.
Glad you are here to share a part of my life. My artwork and designs are such an important part of who I am. So the time has come to display a few of my projects with you.
