Hi there. No spring card today. I’m sharing a masculine birthday card instead. I was also able to check off a stamp set and a die from my continually growing NBUS list. 😉
The NBUS images were stamped with Intense Black ink on X-press It paper and coloured with Copics. The images and the upper portion were masked off and Pacific Point dye ink was blended through a Large Grid stencil with a Clarity brush.
The NBUS Wish was die cut from black cardstock. To make it stand out, it was mounted onto a scrap of white cardstock and fussy cut to give it a white border. The other part of the sentiment was white heat embossed on a black strip.
The paper was trimmed to 5.5″x 3.75″, mounted onto an A2 Pacific Point cardstock piece and then die cut with a Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle for a continuous look. A white gel pen was used to add dot details to the dragon. The sentiments were adhered and glossy accents was added to the Wish diecut to finish.
Okay, since I am playing in Darnell’s challenge, I have to report my teeny little boo-boo as indicated by the oval in the photo below.
Initially, I masked the area on a slant thinking it would look neat, but it looked funny. So to save all the work I’ve done so far, I re-masked the area going straight across and covered as best I could with the large Wish diecut. And I think it worked! 😂
