The new stuff is two stencils by Dina Wakley - I inked the Plastic Canvas stencil with Peacock Feathers Distress ink - leaving a white patch in the center. Then I stenciled the rays in Mustard Seed and the half 'sun' in Spiced Marmalade - both of these stencils are part of The Basics stencil. I'm taking a class that Dina is running in the end of August at Absolutely Everything in Topsfield, MA so I'm buying up some of her 'stuff' to play with before the class! The Happy is a PTI die from Tipped Tops Die set that I popped up on foam dots over the sun - then I stamped the 'birthday' from Studio Calico (retired I think?) in black along the bottom of the card. I layered the panel to a black panel, then layered it all to my white card base. This card makes me HAPPY - with the bright colors and the contrast with the black sentiment!
I'm linking my card to two challenges:
Addicted to CAS - Code Word SUN
and Seize the Birthday - anything goes.
Oh - and check out this new challenge blog - Mixed Media Card Challenge - they are introducing half of the new Design Team today - you might see someone you know there ;) The first challenge is coming on July 1st!
