Hello everyone! For this month’s Birthday Project Challenge from My Favorite Things, it’s all about adding candles to you cards.
I decided to use the adorable chicks and their cupcake filled with candles from the Birdie Brown Birthday Chicks Stamp Set. I love how festive these images look!
To start, I first created my background by blending some Distress Oxide Inks (Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber, Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, and Tumbled Glass) onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I then splattered this panel lightly with water and then gently blotted it dry with a clean paper towel after letting it sit for about a minute. I also splattered it with diluted Opaque White Ink, and both Black and Gold Watercolor Ink.
Once dry, I then blended in some grass using the Grassy Edges Stencil and some Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink. Next, I trimmed this panel down to 4″ x 5.25″ and adhered it to an A2 top folding white card base. All of my images were stamped with Copic friendly Black Ink onto a separate sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored with Copics and cut out with the Birthday Chicks coordinating dies.
I stamped my sentiment with Black Ink onto the upper left section of my card and attached all of my images using some 3D Foam Adhesive Squares.
