Joy Clair - Happy Birthday

Wednesday, April 24, 2019

Hello everyone!

I am here with Joy Clair stamps sharing a birthday card with you.  I am using several stamp sets to create my background.  I used the newly released Whale Hello There, Seas the Day, and Anchors of Hope stamp sets. 

A few weeks ago I was at a crop and decided to play around with alcohol inks using Tim Holtz Yupo paper and Ranger Adirondack Alcohol Ink Cardstock.  My project today, I used the Adirondack Alcohol Ink cardstock.  I love how this background came out.  I love that it's dark in some areas and light in others, it truly looks like the creatures are floating in the water.  I wish I had written down what colors I used to create my background.  However, if you trying to create a water background it will never look like mine.  Every design I created came out totally different, give it a try.  Keep looking out for some more of my creations using the alcohol inks, I have more to share.

Here is how I created my card,

1.  My card is an A2 size card,

2.  The alcohol ink background I cut with my cutter to fit my card base,

3.  I stamped all the elements from the Whale Hello There, Seas the Day, and Anchors of Hope stamp sets.  I used my scan and cut to cut them out,

4.  I colored all the elements with copic markers,

5.  I stamped the sentiment from the Seas the Day stamp set and die cut it out.  I placed all the pieces on my card that I wanted to use and adhered some with a tape runner and some with foam tape.

Here is a closer look at my card.
