Penny Black Furry Flight // Penny Black Birthday Critters // Penny Black Sweet Wishes // Versafine Onyx Ink // Tonic Stamp Platform // Clear Embossing Powder // Zig Clean Color Markers // Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush // Stampin Up Number Set - retired
In this image the little mouse is hanging on a kite, but I thought 3 balloons would be more appropriate for a 3 year old's birthday card, so I used one of the stamps from the Penny Black set Birthday Critters to add balloons to the image, and I simply masked off the kite.
All stamping (image, sentiments and numbers) was heat embossed using Versafine Onyx ink and Clear Embossing Powder. I cut masks out of post it notes to cover all the animals and balloons so I could color/ ink up the background. I used Zig Clean Color markers for the grass and image, and the sky was inked with Blueprint Sketch distress oxide. Wink of Stella Clear Glitter was added to the balloons to make them sparkle and I added a die cut star (retired die by Whimsy Stamps) to the sentiment.
The sentiments are both from the Penny Black set Sweet Wishes, this set is a few years old, but so perfect for kids birthday cards! The number 3 is a stamp from an old Stampin Up Number set.
