This is the birthday card I have made for the birthday I have for July 1st. I have used Jean by Mayzy Green. Jean is so dark and the colors are so bright that when I looked to see on the color wheel what the opposite color was so the background would look good I decided that I should tone down whatever else I added. I decided to take a Hampton Arts stamp, “Birthdays are nature’s way of telling you to eat more cake” and emboss it with semi-transparent sparkle. I really like the way that it turned out. I didn’t try to make it perfect by any means. (That’s probably why it looks more like a store bought card!) LOL On the inside I took another Hampton Arts card and some Versa Vintage Sepia ink and stamped an eloquent “Happy Birthday”. Hopefully the recipient will enjoy it.
Here is my list of copics:
I hope you are inspired to get creative. I am leaving on Sunday and will be gone for a week. I am going to do as many things as possible before I leave. Until we meet again…Ciao…
