Happy Birthday Wishes

Hi guys

As promised, I'm back to share my second card for this morning.  I've managed to combine lots of challenges with this one!

So without further ado, here it is...

I started by cutting a panel of white cardstock slightly smaller than the card base.  I knew I wanted to use ProMarkers to colour my image which is why I didn't stamp directly on the card base as the markers show through onto the inside of the card.

I then used a wooden stamp I've had for years but have never used, and I inked this using Memento ink.  I then coloured in the image with Promarkers.  Next I stamped the sentiment using the same ink as the image.  I chose grey rather than black as I wanted the whole card to have a soft and pretty feel.

Initially I was going to just adhere the panel centrally to the card base but I chose to add some more colour by using some patterned paper on the card base and then adhered the white panel in line with the bottom corner.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Wooden Stamp by Great Impressions (ref G366); Stampin' Up - Petite Pairs
  • Ink: Memento - London Fog
  • ProMarkers: Tulip Yellow, Powder Blue, Mint Green, Bluebell and Orchid
  • Patterned Paper: Dovecraft - Back to Basics IV Designer Paper Pack

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

CASology - Week 92 - Garden
The Shabby Tea Room - Week #215 - Pastel Goodness (use pastels, flowers and polka dots)
Craft Your Passion - Challenge 210 - Pretty Pastels
Addicted to Stamps - Challenge #92 - Make Your Mark
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Keep it Clean and Simple
Charisma Cardz - Challenge #9 - Purple and Blue
Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes
Crafty Catz - Challenge #228 - Anything Goes

Right, I'm off to link up this little lot.  I will no doubt be back with more later today, I'm not feeling particularly great today so I think I'll stay in my comfies and make some more later.

Have a lovely Sunday x
