Hi everyone, today I’m sharing this fun and girly birthday card project with you all!
I started my project by stamping this image by Penny Black called “Lolly” onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface Paper using a juicy black ink pad and I heat embossed directly afterwards using a clear embossing powder. You will get the best results if you use an anti-static powder tool on the paper before stamping the image.
Now I can colour the image using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers in combination with a water brush. Today I’m using the colours: Pale Pink, Oatmeal, EverGreen, Moss Green, Light Carmine, Carmine Red, Deep Vermillion, Brick Beige, Beige, Mid Brown, Dark Brown, Aquamarine Blue and Smoky Teal. After the colouring is done and dry I added back in some highlights using a white gel pen and I fussy cut the image leaving a small border.
Now that my focal point is ready I can work on my background: for this I die cut a rectangle panel, two sizes smaller than my card base, from design paper from my stash. Onto this panel I stamp my sentiment, which comes in the same Penny Black stamp set that I used before. And I also die cut a slightly larger rectangle panel from matching gray blue card stock and I adhered both rectangle panels together using liquid glue. Next I die cut a circle shape from vellum.
The combined rectangle panels I adhered onto a creme coloured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape. I than adhered the vellum circle shape onto the coloured and fussy cut image using a little liquid glue and than adhered this combination onto the card project using one millimetre thick foam tape.
And that is it for today’s card project! I wish you a creative day!
