Hi everyone, here’s a birthday card with and unusual colour scheme and some interesting ink techniques for the background panel.

Hand made birthday card with stamped and die cut larkspur, on a stamped and inked background.

For this card I used a lovely Larkspur stamp and die cut set. I stamped the flower in black ink, colored it using marker pens, die cut it and mounted it on a die cut oval of white card and then on an oval of purple card to match the color of the flowers.  

I used a 12.5cm square white card blank, layered that with more of the purple card and then cut a piece of white card to make the stamped background layer. I used the Scratches background stamp stamping first with Tea Dye distress ink, then rotating the card 90 degrees and stamping again with Tea Dye, then rotating again and stamping a third time but this time with Old Paper. Once all the stamped layers were dry I inked over everything with Bundled Sage, using an ink blending tool.

I attached the purple and stamped layers to the card front using a Glue Dots Tape Runner which made it very quick and easy. The Oval was attached with adhesive foam pads to raise it a little.   The greeting comes from a sheet of gold and white die cut greetings which I inked around the edges with a Violet pigment ink and attached with foam pads at one end and a dab of glue at the other. The last thing was to add some adhesive gold metal dots to the corner.
