>Birthday Card for my SIL
Well, I totally forgot that my sister in law’s birthday is coming up early next month. So I went to work and tried colour layering, as seen on the Hero Arts blog this month. I used the Hero Arts dandelion frame stamp, and just stamped part of it in Victorian Velvet and Worn Lipstick… unfortunately, the colours didn’t really blend as well as I had hoped. I stamped the image 4 times, never cleaning the stamp between inkings. Taking a cue from Jen McGuire on the Paperclipping podcast #25, I found some old chipboard letters I bought because they were cute, but had never used. They didn’t show up on the cardstock without something dark behind it, so I brought in the brown to pull the mauvey brown colour of the Victorian Velvet. I just kept a simple knot and put Jen’s name in the chipboard letters… the card went off into the mail today, so hopefully it will arrive by her birthday!!
