Birthday Wishes



I have to say that I think this Silhouettes stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle is one of my favorites as it is so versatile.

For this birthday card, I started out with a vintage book page and I heat embossed the image with Clear Detail embossing powder.  Then out came the Distress Inks (Vintage Photo and Gathered Twig) and I just started adding ink to the paper with my blending tool.  Once I was happy with the results, I wiped a paper towel over the embossed area to get the excess ink off.  (This is called the clear resist technique).   I colored a few pearls with my Copic marker, added a bit of yarn and adhered it to my panel.  The sentiment is heat embossed with Brown Fizz embossing powder.  Even though the image is flowers, I think it has a nice masculine feel to it.
