Full Bloom - It's Your Day



Hi everyone.  Today I'm using a sweet image is from Penny Black's new release Full Bloom.  The stamp set is called It's Your Day (30-553) and it has a matching die (... your day cut out 51-537).  Isn't it cute??  :)

I stamped the cake in black and clear heat embossed.  The cake, candles and sweet party bear were all watercolouring using distress inks.  Clear wink of stella was added to the candles for a little sparkle, and gloss accents to make them shine, but couldn't get that to show in the photos.

I stamped and die-cut two of the images, using one (with coloured candles) as the backdrop, and popping the cake and bear layer on top to add a bit of dimension.., with yellow splatters in the background.

The sentiment (from the same stamp set) is stamped in black and clear heat embossed to match the image.

Here's a close-up ...
I hope you enjoyed seeing this fun card.  Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

That is an adorable image, Loll! I love that you cut it twice so that the candles appear on top of the cake viewing it from an angle. Now that was creative. Love your fabulous painting on this too.

The little bear leaning against the big birthday cake is so adorable, Loll! Your beautiful watercoloring brings him to life. The rainbow colored candles and the confetti-like yellow spatters are so cheerful and perfect for the occasion.

This is such a fun image and design for either a child or an adult, even an older adult with a sense of humor about how many candles are on that delicious-looking cake! If it were my cake, that bear would be getting out of the way of the immense heat, lol!! Love the coloring and the yellow schplattered background! Hugs, Dolly
