For my eclectic Paperie DT piece today I'm sharing a birthday card that I've made for one of my nieces. Christmas has had to take a back seat for a few days as I've got one or two family birthdays to make cards for plus I'm attending the 2 day Finnabair workshop this week end ! Just getting a little excited now!!
I started with the background and got my Dylusions out and spritzed some card with Fresh Lime, Lemon Zest and Pure Sunshine. I then used the Wendy Vecchi Polka Dotty stencil and spritzed it with Postbox Red. While the stencil was still wet with ink I flipped it over and pressed it onto the card so you get the negative print from the stencil. I then used the 3 Flourishes stencil and some Fresco Finish paint.
I stamped the sentiment from the A Form of Art set using black Archival ink. The main image is from the same set and I masked it off and then used the Fancy Florals set with Orange Blossom Archival ink.
I painted one of the wooden Prima flowers and then stamped it with the Fancy Florals stamp using Orange Blossom Archival ink. The other flowers are cut using the Tattered Flowers strip die. The little postage stamp is cut using the Movers and Shapers die and I've stamped it with a stamp from the Tim Holtz French Marketplace set using Potting Soil Archival ink. The metal pieces have all had Fresco Finish painted dabbed on to them so they weren't as shiny.
