WSC 113 - Happy Birthday

Hi everyone - it's time for another wonderful sketch from MFT!

Today I've used Doodle Garden - Sweet Friend and created a background using masking and sponging. The sentiments and flourishes are from Finishing Flourishes.

First I stamped and coloured the image with copics. I then created a mask and overstamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from Finishing Flourishes repeatedly. I left the mask on, and cut the image with a Circle STAX, sponging the edges before removing the Die-namics. Lastly I stamped one of the flourish images and removed the mask.

I used the Notched Tag Die-namics and covered the heart in Xmas Red stickles.

The edges of my patterned paper are also sponged with Kraft ink and I faux stitched with a white gel pen.

Inside the card I've repeated some of the stamped elements and created a sentiment panel.

Here are the wonderful My Favorite Things goodies I've used today:
