Birthday Hi

Happy Sunday everyone!  Today I am sharing another super CAS birthday card with Buddy. The stamp set was still sitting out on my desk, and since I still need to make more birthday cards, I made this.

Buddy was stamped in the upper right corner of a white A2 stitched rectangle panel with Intense Black ink and coloured with Copics.  I then masked him and used a DIY cloud stencil and blending tool to crelate the sky background with Tumbled Glass distress ink.

The sentiment was die cut twice from white cardstock to stack them for dimension.  They were Ombré coloured with Copics and highlights were added with a white gel pen.  To make the sentiment the focus and really stand out, I die cut another sentiment from black cardstock and offset them to get a shadow effect.

The panel was adhered to a white top folding card base and glossy accents was added to the balloon and sentiment as a finishing touch.  As you can see, I made two cards but added a stamped sentiment to the other one.




I am playing in the following challenges:
