Mixed Media Card: It’s Your Birthday

Hello everyone… I am back again… Today I have 2 blog posts for you to check out. The first one is Our Daily Bread Designs Anniversary Blog Hop, and second post is about a mixed media birthday card.

I was inspired by the STAMPlorations March sketch and theme when I created this card using Smile stamp setKathryn’s Birthday stamp setMixed Media Grunge stamp setZen Hearts Stensil.

The background I created with Ken Oliver – Color Bursts Caribbean powder and mixture of Perfect Pearl powder and water spray. And I used the ghosting technique with the stencil on it, too. Then I stamped the bubble wrap and dots pattern on the watercolored panel with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Then I stamped the leaves branches on the other color burst background paper with Versafine Onyx Black ink, then fussy cut them out. I added some sparkle glitter on them using Spectrum Noir Sparkle Glitter Brush Pen. I added them on the card with some do adhesive.

I stamped the sentiment on a white cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink and cut out the pennant tail. I did the same thing with the black cardstock and slightly overlap them to give a shadow under the white one.

I finished the card with some of the flower wood veneers.
