Happy Happy Birthday

Hello friends, I hope you have had a restful weekend - and the week is being kind to you!  I have a card to share with you today using a 3D Stamp by Spellbinders. I love colouring these images, they give such great dimension.

The image has been stamped using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black ink and coloured using Chameleon Pens.  It has been fussy cut/hand cut.

The background stamp is from Penny Black Inc. It has been stamped onto kraft card and sponged using Imagine Memento ink in Teal Zeal and popped up onto a pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  Corrugated card has been torn and adhered to the lower portion of the brickwork.  A Die cut frame from my stash has been adhered to the layered card base.

The image has been tucked into the frame and dimension added using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  I have finished off by adhering a computer generated sentiment.

This card is linked to the following challenges:

  4. Hi, Linda. This is a lovely card -- love the dimension and coloring. I removed it from the STAMPlorations Anything Goes gallery because it doesn't have any STAMPlorations product (as per the rules for that challenge) but feel free to link this up to our other challenges (like the Theme & Sketch challenge) where STAMPlorations products are not required. Have a lovely day! ~Shery
