Happy Happy Birthday...


Hey,

So at the loft art retreat I bought a set of the new Tim Holtz mini stencils, I bought a set that didn't contain any of the full size ones that I have.

I used Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade through the stencil and spritzed it and then dried it with my heat tool.

I cut it in to a narrow strip and mounted it onto the card blank.

The tag is a shop bought one - I love tags and buy them all the time..its an addiction to go with my many other addictions LOL.

I mounted the tag at a jaunty angle and originally only had the orange Happy Birthday strip (stamp by Simon Says Stamp) I didn't like it, so die cut a Happy in white and added orange embossing powder.

Now I am much happier with my final card :)

I love all these fun techniques using distress inks, they are so versatile and can really change a card from cute to a teeny bit edgy.

  1. A lovely inky card. I haven't succumbed to tag addiction yet, is there a vaccine available? Cara x
