Happy Birthday in Blue

Congratulations to this week's Featured Stamper, Leslie!

I chose this card as my inspiration:

LIST: Colours - blues and white, Techniques - stamping and die cutting, Element - layered coloured cardstock-border die cuts with piercing, stamped stars, stamped sentiment along bottom border, Christmas theme, hanging 'ornament'.

INCLUDE: colours - blues and whites

MODIFY: ink-smooshed panel used for border die cuts, curves become diamonds, theme changed to birthday, added heat embossed sentiment on vellum strip, splatter instead of jewel embellishments

EXCLUDE: stars, hanging ornament

SPIN: square card

I started by creating an ink-smooshed panel using Juniper Mist, Skylight, Shea Butter and Rouge inks from Catherine Pooler. I added gold, blue and purple metallic splatter. 

When it was dry, I cut the panel with a Pretty Pink Posh diamond border die. I adhered them all to a white panel and then trimmed it down to a square. I added Juniper Mist ink to the edges of a slightly larger square for my navy mat.

My Ellen Hutson birthday sentiment was stamped and embossed with gold onto Pearlescent vellum from Lawn Fawn.

    Stay safe
