Happy Birthday


I had fun making this card!!!  I started with white cardstock, a 6x6 TCW stencil (Dina Wakley mini chevron tiles), translucent embossing paste (Wendy Vecchi or Dreamweavers) and dylusions sprays.  Put the stencil on the cardstock, add the paste, remove stencil, put excess paste back into jar, spray stenciled cardstock with Dylusions (yes, the paste was still wet) and then let it all dry.  After it was dry I added Viva Inka Gold over the paste and around the edges.  Next I used a Stencil Girl stencil from the May club kit (love the May kit!!) and white embossing paste.  I let the paste dry and then painted the flowers using PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints.  I used a white gel pen and a black Pitt pen along the edges of the leaves and stems.  I also used a yello Posca paint pen to make a few lines on the flower petals starting at the outside end of the petals and going just part of the way towards the center.  I used one of the die cuts from Tim's tattered banners die, sprayed it with Dylusions and stamped Happy Birthday (Quietfire Design) on it with jet black Archival.  The butterfly is also a Quietfire stamp.  It is stamped onto white cardstock with Archival Ink aquamarine, cut out, yellow dots added with a Posca pen, and yellow pearls along the body.
