Birthday Brights


Sunglasses on, girls!  I'm playing along with Curtain Call, where this is the inspiration:


The image in the background is a quarter of one stamp.  The stamp is so large, it comes mounted on its own acrylic block.  I first saw it on Hermine's blog here where she made four different cards using each quarter of the stamped image.  I just had to have it ;)

I inked the full stamp with various colours of Distress Ink, spritzed it then stamped it onto one large sheet of card.  (I got three further prints by re-spritzing and stamping off onto more card.)  I stamped CityGirl onto spare card, watercoloured her raincoat with Distress Inks and fussy cut her.  The sentiment is from the same CityGirl set.

I'm also entering this card into Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, Anything Goes.

  12. Wow...that is one big stamp!!! I can't imagine it would be all that easy to 'place down' on a card! The spirtzing technique is definitely the answer! Another amazing creation Shirley :)

  13. So I know I already commented on this card, but I was looking through the gallery at Curtain Call again and had this thought: "Why do I even bother entering the challenges Shirley's in?" I thought it might amuse you. ;)
