Happy Birthday

Hello!

Today i'm sharing a card i made for Penny Black's Simplicity Challenge! This card was inspired by Mayuri card here. I also tried a new technique i learned from the Online Card Class, but it didn;t work quite how i wanted it to!

One of the many techniques in the class was to make a stamped faux tile, only my attempt dosne;t really look like a tile. I think i need to get the super thick embossing powder!

I don't have any art inchies that were used for this technique, so i made my own from some thin chip board (think cereal box) and white card stick. I used a  rectangle die to cut each piece, then adhered them together. Then i covered the rectangle with a post it note

Next i used Penny Black's Field of Dreams poppy flower die, i placed over my rectangle and ran it through my Big Shot once. It cut through the post it note and card stock but not the chip board. I learned that a die that more solid shape would be best as i had a little trouble with the steam, but it worked out in the end.

I carefully pealed the background post it note, leaving the post it note over the flowers. With a couple distress inks, i added blue ink to the background. When that was done, pealed the flower post it notes off and colored the flowers and stems with Copic markers.

Next i added several layers of clear embossing powder to the rectangle. I think i did four layers, but i still didn;t get a dome or at least a smooth finish over the flower, so it dosent; really look like a tile. But i still like it!

I added the rectangle to a white card base and stamped the sentiment below it. Last i used a butterfly punch to add black butterflies.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! (stay warm!!)

  1. This is totally stunning! Even if it didn't turn out quite like you intended it's absolutely a masterpiece! I ran out of the UTEE a while back and find I usually need 6-7 layers of regular EP to get the same effect as a few coats of UTEE :)
