A Special Birthday

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to this month’s InspireInk blog hop.

The theme this month is “Milestone Birthday”

I have to say this was a bit tricky, I really miss the Large Numbers for this sort of card.

Instead, I have used the small numbers in the Pick a Pennant stamp set and used it like confetti in the background.

I started with the large Happy Birthday from the One for All set, stamping this with versamark ink and then heat embossed with clear powder.

This was repeated with the little numbers.

The Pick a Pennant stamp set also had some cute stars which I decided to include in the design.

I wanted these to be yellow so I applied some Pineapple Punch over the card using a sponge. Once dry, the stars were added using versamark ink and embossed.

To complete the card, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay and Highland Heather inks were sponged over the embossing.

Excess ink was removed from the embossing with a barely damp cloth.

For some added interest I spritzer some water over the piece, lifting a little of the ink. Texture was added with the Scattered Sequins embossing folder.

I hope you enjoyed this project.
