Happiest Birthday

This is a beautiful tree stamp that I received recently. I knew that I would heat emboss it in white, what I was not sure of is the colour I wanted to use for my background. I love inks, and only wish I could have every ink that is available. To help me decide I made the decision of using copper glitter cardstock for part of my sentiment. So, I picked this blue green colour for my background. 

I started by die cutting my panel using the stitched rectangle, then in my Misti I arranged where I wanted the tree, then stamped and heat embossed using white embossing powder. I applied the ink using my Clarity brushes, which applies the ink so smoothly and easily allowing me to lighten the colour as I go. Once I was happy with the look, I die cut and added the "wishing" sentiment using the copper glitter paper. I stamped the rest of the sentiment using copper ink, and die cut with the label die. I added copper metallic drops to finish my card.   

Thanks so much for dropping by today.

I Love your choice of color behind your beautiful heat embossed tree, Kia. I need to use my Clarity brushes more...your soft smooth colored background is just wonderful. Your gold die cut sentiment and Nuvo drops are beautiful accents too. TFS your beauty, my friend. Hugs.
