Birthday Wishes Ted
Today's card is one I made for The Glitter Pot's Spring Spectacular weekend using this lovely teddy stamp by Penny Black called Joie De Vivre - he really looks in the birthday mood doesn't he?
Those gorgeous background papers are by Basic Grey and are from the Kioshi range. I think this is such a beautiful range of papers - there isn't one paper from this series that I don't like! The wording is from my Fancy Flourishes stamp sheet. There are lots of words on this sheet and 3 different fonts allowing you to mix and match the styles which I really like to do!
Clear Spica pen over the top. I managed to get the lighting right so that you can see the gorgeous shimmer that this pen gives here on the balloons and as you see it doesn't detract from the original colouring in any way. Just LOVE this pen! The Spicas also come in some lovely colours too but I definitely use the Clear one the most.
Then on other parts of the image I used some Diamond glitter glue which gives more of a sparkle. I really like to layer my shimmer and glitter in this way as it gives more dimension to the image when it catches the light.
Well must get back to making those card samples!
