• Birthday cards for her

    Hi there, I'm back after a family vacation with 2 birthday cards for her, 
    since I decided to use both negative and positive die cuts.

    First I used the largest My favorite things wonky stitched rectangle to cut out an alcohol ink panel I had already made. Then I used MFT Cheers and Birthday Girl word dies on the panel - I removed all the letters and was really careful to not loose the inside "bubbles" of the letters. 


    I carefully glued a piece of acetate to the back and glued on the loose bits as well. I hand cut a hole in a frame of white cardstock and placed the alcohol ink panel on top.Then I build up the shaker with crafting foam, used my antistatic bag and filled the tub with sequins, tiny confetti and glitter in colors of 
    silver, pink and purple.

    I then cut the MFT layered champagne glass twice. The glass itself is colored with Spun sugar Distress oxide ink and I colored on a couple of details with my Copic markers - RV55 and RV02.
    The layered part is covered in WOW! silver sparkle embossing powder. Because - a girl needs glitter! The glasses are popped up with crafting foam as well.

    First card done, but I decided I couldn't wait to use the positives from the Birthday Girl dies.

    For this card I used Canson watercolor paper. I made sure my MFT captivating mandala stencil had spray adhesive on the back and placed it on the cardstock. I also taped it in place with painters tape. 
    I then smeared a decent layer of Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer paste over the stencil and while the stencil was still there, I dapped on a bit of Nuvo Violet brocade Shimmer powder and sprayed on a good amount of water.
    With a paper towel a dapped off the excess water, and repeated the process a couple of times, until the whole piece was covered.

    I removed the stencil and let the panel dry. I did have a little bit of 
    bleeding in the middle, but decided to still use the panel. 
    I used a coordinating purple panel for base and cut out the letters 
    3 more times and layered them for dimention.

    The cards will be entered into the May challenge Anything goes 
    at the all new AAA Birthday challenge blog, as well as 
    the current SSS wednesday challenge anything goes.
