Banner Happy

TGIF and Happy Friends with Flair. It's been a busy week! I wanted to share the cards I made to send out to the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge design team members... just a little welcome note to the team :)

I used Unity Stamps "Banner Moment" background stamp, a flower from April SMAK, and the sentiment from "sending happy" SOTW. 


To create the background, I stamped 4 different Distress Ink colors onto the banner stamp. Then I lightly misted the inked stamp with water, then stamped onto the paper. Once the image was stamped, I gave another mist of water to the paper to help the colors bleed a little more. The flower and sentiment were stamped in 'Chipped Sapphire'.


To finish off the card, I used a star stencil with modeling paste. I immediately put pink fine glitter over the stars to stick to the wet modeling paste, then hit it with my heat gun to dry.

Make sure to stop by the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge to see the fun giveaways going on. We'll start our first challenge on June 1! I can't wait!
