Found a lovely image on our inspiration site today (IC507):https://www.pinterest.com/pin/96545985733262013/
For my card I masked off the bottom section and then sponged inks (2 shades of green and 2 shades of orange), stamped several texture stamps (stamping off first), sponged white pigment ink through circle stencils as well as the text stamp, stamped and embossed the main image so it would show more dramatically, then spritzed the whole panel with shimmer spritz for sparkle! Added the bottom panel in black cs with die cut sentiment – but used the inlaid die cut technique for the “happy”. I knew I was going to raise this panel, so the good news was that because I just adhered a little piece of black construction paper behind the word, I didn’t have to put back in those tiny little pieces (the down side of inlaid die cuts with sentiments). Popped up the panel with dimensionals – I love how this turned out – I think it can work for a guy or a gal!
