Inkurable Birthday Challenges

Challenge No.3
The base card stock is soft suede from Stampin up. The next layer is 7 Gypsies and lastly very vanilla. I stamped the bird in soft suede x 2 and used the 7 gypsies paper to back the oval. I used the stamp resist method and stamped the scroll in versamark and clear embossed it. I used the blending tool to blend the Tumbled Glass and Antique Linen Distress inks over the very vanilla cardstock. Finally I added a ribbon and a sentiment from Darkroom Door.
Challenge No.2
The 2x4 inch cardstock is a pale brown colour. I added a darker piece of cardstock and then another piece of cardstock in a tan colour. The tan piece was stamped with a scroll stamp and smudged around the edges with Distress Walnut Stain. I added the picture with was from Studio 45 and attached it with sanded back orange brads. I added a scrap piece of handmade paper and stamped over it with a scroll stamp and walnut ink. The star is grunge board painted with moonglow and heated.

Challenge No.1
ATC base card is purple cardstock. The next layer is water colour paper which has been stamped with Basic Grey scroll stamps and versamark. Embossed with clear embossing powder. I then sprayed over with various colours of Moon glow sprays and wiped over to reveal the scrolls. With the left over paper I stamped Darkroom Door ATC Stamps in Stazon Black and versamark and embossed in clear embossing powder. I cut out the little pictures and popped with a backing of the purple cardstock. Finally I added a gorgeous butterfly charm.

I thinks its time to share what we did after we went to Sarah's Inkurable Birthday party! We had a fantastic time with great people, conversation, party games, party food and drink, although the last two were supplied by me! It was excellent to be able to talk to all the girls who regularly submit to the blog and we even had several overseas visitors drop by. Thanks Gio and els. Some great prizes were won playing bingo and crazy captions and a trivia game, at which I was pathetic at. Thanks for all your organization Sarah!
