Happy birthday in orange and pink!

Hello everyone!

Have a fantastic weekend! Today I decided to combine products from many different companies…because stretching our supplies is always good! So I chose to play with MFT, Hero Arts, Create a Smile, Lindy’s Stamp Gang and Ranger Distress Oxides!And I admit I had great fun! Hope you enjoy the outcome!

Quick Instructions:

I started off by applying Distress Oxides through my stencil. Then I stamped the pig on white cardstock using Hero Arts Charcoal ink and I watercolored it with watered-down Tombow markers and Lindy’s magicals. While I had the magicals out I decided to make a wash on white cardstock using the same pink I painted the cake with. Once the paper dried I die cut a few hearts to use as embellishment. Then I cut out a black and a white diagonal stripe of cardstock paper. Once my image was totally dry I decided to heat emboss it to make it more interesting, for this I used Versamark ink and clear embossing powder. Then I stamped the sentiment on the white stripe using Hero Arts Ultra Pink ink and then I heat embossed it same way I did with the pig. To finish off my card I adhered everything down using double sided tape and glossy accents. Done!
