I’m sharing a project made with and IndigoBlu Dinkie stamp set called Aloysius/Happy Birthday. I decided to make two cards. The first one is more masculine and second one is more feminine.
To create this card I sprayed piece of white Bristol paper with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists shown below, Lobster, It's Orange, and Ruby Slipper. I also sprayed with water to mix the colors. When it was dry I sprayed the area where I stamped the bear with water several times and blotted with a paper towel to lighten that area so the bear would show up better. It's a little more pronounced in person than in the picture. I stamped the bear and sentiment with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide
To make it more festive I cut out a birthday hat from a Tim Holtz stamp set and colored it with the same Glimmer Mists I used for the background and adhered it with some foam tape. As I was looking for brown card stock, I saw a jar in my craft room with some brown rick rack and I thought it would be perfect for this card. So, I added Rick Rack around the edges with PPA Glue to make a cute frame. And, I used up some of my stash. That's always a plus.
I wasn't happy with my first stamping of the bear so I stamp it a second time. But, I liked the sentiment from the first card, so I cut out a strip with the sentiment and cut off the sentiment on the card with this bear and added the strip to the bottom. Since I had my Rick Rack out, I added it around the sentiment using PPA glue.
