Creative Expressions Zen Betty clear stamps – Birthday card

Welcome, it’s Friday and time to share Creative Expressions DT project!
I am sharing a card I have made for my niece’s birthday today, using the clear Stamp set Zen Betty from Creative Expressions.

I have coloured her with complimentary colours to the tag I made last week, so the two items coordinate as a set together.
Claire Newcombe 15jan20161. On a 12 x 12 cm piece of white card stock I stamped ‘Betty’ off centre, and coloured her with alcohol marker pens. Then, using low tack masking tape (or low tack washi tape) Create a mask of ‘Betty’ by stamping her on a scrap piece of paper, cutting her out and placing over the coloured image (sorry I forgot to photograph that step!)  I masked off a 1.5 cm border around the 12 x 12 cm piece, this also held the mask of Betty in place.

2. Take the 6×6 cm Creative Expressions mask (That Special Touch Mask – Counterpane)  place centrally over your cardstock. Working with Creative Expressions blending Smoothies and Cosmic Shimmer Colour Cloud (Pretty in Pink), work the ink through the mask until you have enough colour. Peel away the masking tape carefully, so as not to spoil your card stock, revealing clean crisp lines.

3. Repeat the colour blending process on the card blank. Concentrate only on the outer edges, as the centre of the card blank will be covered by the mat.

4. Matt and layer onto coordinating cardstock before mounting onto the card. Complete the card by stamping the sentiment from the Zen Betty set, and embellish with flat backed gems.
