I've been trying to get a head of the game, so to speak as there are a lot of summer birthday's that I like to send cards too. Here I was finally able to play and practice with my Tim Holtz Distress Oxides. I created my background on Bristol smooth paper, using peeled paint and broken china. Then spritz it with a distress sprayer and dried it with a heat gun. I then misted it with sheer shimmer sparkle spray and created my own glittery paper!
I then die cut the front panel with the MFT Peek a Boo die, and also die cut the background with MFT Blueprints 13 frame die. Stamped the Party Animal images onto Spectrum Noir Card Stock and colored them in with Copics and die cut them. Stamped my sentiment, and started assembling it onto a Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock base. Fancied it up with glossy accents on the party hats and added a few Pretty Pink Posh clear mix sequins for embellishments.
