Happy Birthday...

I made this card recently for a friend whose favourite colour is blue :-)

  1. I die cut the tag shape from a piece of card so I could use the negative as a stencil and graduated the three distress ink colours using the sponging method.  
  2. I then sprayed the Manorhouse flowers with blue colour spray to deepen the colour
  3. I stamped the happy birthday greeting in midnight blue stazon
  4. While the flowers dried, I stamped the envelope, sponged it, and dragged the stazon inkpad around the edges of the envelope and card for definition.  
  5. I stamped inside the card with another birthday greeting
  6. Then attached the flowers with hot glue.
