Sweet Birthday!

Hello everyone!

I'm back with card project for you today.  

I got the thought of doing a waffle background and started thinking of how to do it.  A grid stencil will work but for me the lines were too weren't thick enough so I thought of using a very thin washi tape.  I am super excited with how it turned out.  I've added a picture of the background before I removed all the tape.  

I used the Ice Cream, You scream stamp set.  This is an older set but still a great one to have in your stash.  I love how the sentiments have two different fonts.  I stamped the images on to heavy card stock with black ink and coloured them in with my copics and added glossy accents to the ice cream.  cut out a banner from black card stock andI then heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing power.  I adhered the banner to the front panel and then the ice cream cone and popsicle to the banner.

For the main image I wanted to do my favourite flavour which is Orange Pineapple so I coloured it in best I could. I recently purchase action wobbles and wanted to use them on this card so I added to the image and then to the card.

Here is a picture of the background and how I created it.  I used two different brown inks to give it dimension and then removed the washi tape and used a rectangle die to cut it out.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon.
