‘Enjoy’ your birthday – Creative Expressions

Hi there, hope you’ve all had a good weekend. Unfortunately it has been rather wet and unpleasant here, but it has given me a chance to write this post. I should have shared this card with you last Friday for Creative Expressions, so I’m running a couple of days late.

I have used MDF speech bubble shapes and the Stitched Speech Bubble clear stamps to create a removable magnet on a background created with Cosmic Shimmer Vanilla Crackle paint.06May2016

I created the background by firstly colouring a piece of foundation card with three colour cloud inks, and then spreading a generous layer of cosmic shimmer crackle paint over the top and allowing to dry overnight. This allowed some of the colour cloud ink to show through, but in much more muted tones. The MDF shapes, and tag for the ‘It’s You Birthday’ sentiment were both coloured again with colour cloud ink before being stamped with words from the Stitched Speech Bubble clear stamp set.

I have a little video tutorial for you here, showing a) how the card was put together, and b) how versatile and vibrant the Cosmic Colour Cloud ink are to use.
