Hello all,

Just thought I would post the Birthday Card for my Brother-in-law (which is also my challenge submission for the StampNation Birthday Bash Celebration (Masculine Birthday, BB12)) that I made today.  I used Alcohol Inks on glossy white card stock to create the background.  The Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous, Bird Crazy image was also stamped on an Alcohol inked panel and then embossed with black embossing powder (image then die cut from the coordinating Bird Crazy thin die).  I colored in parts of the owl with #coloring Alcohol markers.  I finished off the card with some twine (that I colored with Alcohol Ink to match the card) and dimensional tape to for the Crazy Bird image.

Supplies:

Hope he will like this card and appreciate the humor in getting older! 

Happy day to you!

Follow your Dreams, water color Dragonfly

Hello all,

This is a card that I have submitted for a challenge that is part of the StampNation Birthday Bash Celebration.  I used the same white embossed, watercolor technique that Chrissie used in her video challenge (with a teal color palette).  Also, instead of inkpads, I used a simple watercolor set to color in the white embossed Dragonfly image as well as to apply a color wash to the background panel.    The Onyx Black Versafine Archival ink was the perfect ink to stamp the “Follow your Dreams” saying at the bottom of the card.  I finished the card up by mounting on white cardstock and adding some coordinating ribbon and a few gems.

Supplies:

  • Recollections, Snow Embossing Powder
  • Dragonfly image (Inkadinkado)
  • “Follow your Dreams” saying (Recollections)
  • Onyx Black Versafine Archival ink
  • Sheer Ribbon, American Crafts
  • Gems
  • Water Colors
  • White Card Stock
  • Glossy white cards stock (mount for Dragonfly element)

Hope you enjoy!

Happy Day to you,
L
