My birthday stash needs replenishing again already, and especially in the masculine department, so here's what I came up with using some of my favorite stamps, dies, & stencils...
I started with a kraft card base and then added a layer that I stenciled with PFS's Argyle stencil using kraft and blue inks. Next I made my sentiment using Gina K's Birthday Trio Dies and ink blended the "HAPPY" using Blue Raspberry and In the Navy inks (Gina K) in an ombre pattern.
I used CCC's Birthday Wishing stamp & die set for the bunny and balloon, and colored him in with my Copics (E31 & E23) and the balloon with a small blender brush. I had to cover up a bit of the bunny's lower half to make room for the large sentiment, but I still think it came out pretty cute! It may be a little juvenile for a masculine card, but I like it, so it's staying!
You can play along with this challenge HERE until the 14th, and don't forget to check out all the great inspiration from the talented DT too!!
