Hello my dear crafty friends! I’m want to share with you today an out of this world birthday card that I’ve made for my uncle to give to a friend. There was a bit of trial and error in choosing the colors I wanted but once those were chosen, it was a breeze to complete.
I started out by stamping the Hero Arts Stamp set code number CM197. It comes with and adorable little boy and a cluster of planets strung up like balloons. I don’t own the dies but that’s okay because these are really pretty easy to cut out. Not too many sharp turns or tiny spots which is a blessing. To color everything I used my Prismacolor Premier colored pencils and then I used my Cutter Bee scissors to do the fussy cutting.
For the painting I used my favorite Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors. I used a bright yellow, a bright green, and a teal. I layered those colors twice and then I went over with the black. After that I took a paper towel and dabbed some areas up to let the color show a bit more. I did gold splatter with the paint in the palette and then I used Distress Paint for the white splatter.
I then used my NUVO glue to attach the boy and his planets to the card. Next I heat embossed a sentiment of Happy Birthday from a Sizzix stamp set. I embossed the sentiment in Ranger Fine Detail white embossing powder. And yes, I remembered my embossing buddy first. 😉
