Silhouette Happy Birthday
Hi all, I hope everyone has enjoyed there holiday weekend, I sure have.I have a lot of male birthdays coming up in the next few weeks, so this the first one.
I started by using the painters tape technique with Memento Lilac Poise,Tangelo,and Cantaloupe ink. Then stamped the Silhouette Background Tree with Olive Grove. This was cut with a Rectangle Die and layered on to green card stock. The brown layer was stamped with the Lines O"Plenty Background stamp.The green border was cut with a die and I sponged the edges with Rich Cocoa ink. I added two brads and then used the twine and tied a knot.I used foam tape to pop this up. The Tiny Happy Birthday was stamped with Rich Cocoa Ink layered on green card and pop up. A green layer was added on a cream card.
I have had some questions on how to do the painters Tape Technique so I'm going to try and explain. You start with Painters Tape ( masking tape) cut a piece a little longer than the background you want to make, then on your clear block folded back the ends so it would stick to the block. Rub a stamp pad across the tape and the color will stay on the tape.Wipe off any excess ink that may have gotten on the block. And stamp on your card. You will need a new strip of tape for each color that you use. You can use Tombow Markers or any water based marker. I hope this helps.
Have a Wonderful Day,
