Happy Birthday to You!

Hi Everyone , 

It's been a while since I last posted here on my blog so thought I'd share a card I created and shared across my social media accounts (IG and FB) the other week. 

It' a real quick and easy make that involved inking, stamping, stencilling and die cutting using Tim Holtz fabulous products - some not so new, some new. 

The 'not so news' ( but never outdated or past their use by date) were Tim's Stampers Anonymous 'Newsprint' stamp and one of his Sissix Bold Text dies from set #1. 

The newbies were one of Tim's new stencils 'Lined Squares' and the ever so delicious new addition to the distress colour family 'Unchartered Mariner'. 
These stencils 🖤, this colour 💙🖤!!

For this card I teamed 'Unchartered Mariner' up with Mustard Seed, Fossilised Amber, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot. I love how they played together! 

Unfortunately I didn't capture any process shots so only photos of the finished card to share today.

The wrinkle free distress Mustard Seed, Fossilised Amber, Unchartered Mariner inky background peaks through the focal bold text die sentiment.

The Unchartered Mariner stencilling in opposite corners of the background gradually intensifing in colour through to Black Soot emphasises these areas and also helps to draw the viewing eye in to the focal sentiment.

 Some delicate text stamping to the sides of the stencilling adds just a touch of detail and interest to those areas to finish off. 

I hope to be back soon and more often moving forward so hope you'll keep stopping by either here or my social media accounts . 

 I really appreciate you stopping by today - thanks! 
Take care  
keep on the happy side
