How could one go wrong with anything to choose from? I’d been wanting to try a technique out so tonight was a good time to do this, and double triple bonus with Nina and Judy joining in again. So many inspiring DT samples I was off and running.
I created the “happy” with a stencil I whipped up using my Silhouette Cameo – and I tried to use a few layers of vinyl to allow an edge so that I could watercolour with my Tombow markers in shades which match the designer paper (6 x 6 by Heidi Swapp) The vinyl stencil on the edge did not remove so easily but in the end gave the lettering a more hand painted look. I wound up cutting a second offset with a black cardstock to bump the lettering up. After I added ribbon and a teeny Stampin’ Up birthday then my handsome Mr deemed my card finished and stopped me from going on and making it more complicated.
I had fun, hope you’ve enjoyed my card too!
