I've been making a lot of non-birthday cards lately, but this week-end I wanted to do some more Birthday cards. You can never have to many....
I think this Happy Birthday stamp is perfect for a chalkboard look, so I wanted to try that.
I paired it the make a wish stamp from the same set, just to make the sentiment even larger. I heat embossed it in white on my black panel and stamped it a second time with white pigment ink, slightly offset to create a shadow effect. I also stamped the swirls and stars from the set, though only once and added an uneven frame with a white gel pen.
When all had dried I used a dry baby wipe to add some more white ink mostly around the edges to create the chalkboard look. Then I adhered it to a simple red card base and stamped and doodled the envelope to make it match.
Looking at it now from a distance of two days I am impressed that I managed to use three different sentiments from one set all on one card. And all the tiny lines and stars too.
Now I am off to bed, I am not feeling all too well tonight. Better get some sleep.
Have a great time
