It's my day on the PRS Blog & this week's project is a bright, happy birthday card. I began by cutting a panel of white cardstock with angles. Then I double white embossed the fun cassette tape image from the Daily Thoughts stamp set, using a stamp positioner.
Distress Oxide twisted citron was sponged over the entire panel, adding more layers inside the images. DO inks are very easy to blend, but another reason I decided to add them to my stash is the fact that they have pigment ink qualities. That allowed me to stamp a label for the tapes & the card sentiment from the Oh So Fun stamp set, plus the star cluster from Daily Thoughts. The dots are made by touching the tip of a waterbrush to the inked panel & blotting with a paper towel.
Love adding texture with an embossing folder, so that's what I did after the sentiment was stamped on the card front. Fun foam was used behind the stamped panel to keep even dimension after it goes through the mail. I think this fun green shade combined with the tape image works for a guy or a gal, especially one who loves music & isn't too young--haha!
