Goodness, two posts in two days! I don't manage that very often! I have used a fabulous club stancil by Clarity Stamp for this card - I think the tree looks kind of spooky! I only used the top half of the stencil, the bottom is a really cool design too! I am a member of both the Clarity stamp and stencil clubs - its so worth it! I love waiting for my package to arrive each month.
The background is painted with Spectrum Noir Aqua Tints from the Brights set then sprayed with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist. I let the Glimmer Mist pool so it would take out some of the colour to give a bleached effect. The stencilling is done with Black Soot Distress Ink and I also inked the edges with the Black Soot too. The little flowers are cut with a cute die, I can't remember the make - if you would like to know, let me know and I will find out. I am sure I have the package but can't find it at the moment. The centres of the flowers are tiny pink pearls. Happy Birthday is a Clarity stamp. I masked each word and stamped them separately. I added the string round the top cause it looked a bit bare. The blue is actually a lovely purple but it didn't come out in the photo, sorry.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
Clarity Stamp - Trees
That's Crafty - Anything Goes
Both these challenge blogs are worth a look, as are their online stores - they both sell awesome craft stuff!
Thank you for visiting me - I appreciate it so very, very much! Have a fabulous New Years Eve and see you next year! Take care! Christine xxx
