I made this card for a Mixed Media Card challenge out in blogland but my inspiration was a pinterest posting from Audrie from her IC challenge several weeks ago. This was my inspiration.
I first stamped one of the women, from the Silhouetted Women stamp set by Dina Wakley, onto a panel of kraft card. I created a skirt on the woman using Paperartsy Opaque Haystack and Opaque Snow Flake acrylic paints. I used the same paints for the brushstrokes on the background. The black streaks were created with a black Stabilo pencil that I rubbed over with a wet finger to blur.
I die cut the Birthday out of black card and stamped the HAPPY above it on the panel. They are from the Birthday Cheer die and stamp sets from PTI. I added 3 Winter Blend sequins from Avery Elle. I sponged around the edges of the kraft panel with Ranger Distress Ground Espresso and adhered it to a slightly larger panel of Harvest Gold card and finally to the white card base.
