A big congrats to Francine, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a fab gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the die word cut off at the bottom, but used different dies, different colors & made mine a birthday card.
I made a similar card, w/ the die cut bottom like this, a long time ago & liked the look, so I was immediately drawn to that in Francine's card. For my version, I die cut the 2 white panels; on the smaller one, I also die cut the bottom using the shadow part of the word die, then put it back. On the larger bg, I sponged just a little color at the bottom, then used a spritzer tool & Copics to spray the color onto it. Not as smooth as an airbrush system, but it will do. Then the stars bg was stamped in some of the same hot pink colors over this bg. I also put a white Posca pen into the spritzer tool & misted it, too. I did the same on the die cut Birthday, using the blue Copics. I added a star border die cut & added some stickles to it for a little sparkle.
Thanks so much for looking. It's on my blog w/ more pics & links: The Write Stuff

Julie, this is such a great case of Francine's card. What a clever way to use the shadow die cut. I would have never thought of it in a million years. I love the colorful background and the sparkly stars.
