Hi Crafty Friends,
Today I have been "monkeying around" with a few stamps and dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs to make this fun birthday card.
I used Broken China Distress Oxide Ink to create my background panel and spritz it with water using a Distress Sprayer.
The balloon is one of the newest release dies from the A Way With Words die collection, which I die cut using designer papers and then adhered to the upper part of my card using foam tape. I cut the balloon down slightly as I needed to make space for the monkey.
The monkey is an older stamp from the Jungle Cuties Clear stamp set.
I die cut the "Happy Birthday" twice .... once from White Soft Finish Cardstock and one from White Soft Finish Cardstock that had Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the top.
For the adhesive covered sentiment, I added True Red Silk Microfine Glitter to the adhesive and adhered to my card as above.
For the white sentiment I colored the sentiments in ombre fashion using Copic markers and adhered this over the top of the glittered sentiment slightly offsetting the sentiment.
To finish off the card I added some clear crystals randomly around the blue background.
For the inside of the card I added the A Way With Words - Make A Wish sentiment which I again colored using the ombre technique.
