Bring on the Happy

My craft room have been very neglected over the past little while. I did get a chance to put a little ink to paper the other day.

I am playing along with CAS Mix Up  - April addition :) Although in typical Nina fashion I may have missed the CAS mark I was hoping for.

I stencilled the background using Distress Inks, I then stamped the flowers and coloured them with matching Distress Markers. I was not using watercolour paper so the ink did not mingle all that well.

I die cut the Happy from glitter foam and head embossed the sentiment on black cardstock in white. The flowers and birthday are popped up with foam tape and then I used Wink of Stella with a heavy hand on the flowers. The center panel is then mount with a rectangle of foam.

Supplies: White and black card stock, Verve - Lean on Me, Technique Tuesday - Say It Happy.

Thanks for visiting,
