FS544 - Happy Birthday


Congratulations to this week's Splitcoaststampers' Featured Stamper, Ann Greenspan (aka yaleann7).

I chose this card from her gallery as my inspiration:


I focused on Ann's:
-floral theme
-three 'scribble' roses
-black sentiment
-circle elements

I changed:
-technique
-no black stripes

I die cut the flowers and leaves to create masks and then blended distress inks with a sponge dauber (smaller than an ink blender and gives a bit more control).  I spritzed with water for some texture and then cut a circle out of the panel. I inlaid the 'happy' into the circle and then popped the circle up from the panel, where I had stamped the rest of my sentiment.

Lovely card Ardyth - love the fact you used the die cut as a stencil, and also cut and layered the large circle. Unfortunately the video would not play - it said it was private. :-(
Blessings
