Happy Birthday Marg

Happy Birthday to my sister Margaret. I wanted to put her card up earlier, but was waiting until she received it via snail mail first. It is now a few days since her birthday and the snail seems extra slow, so I thought I should show it to her here.

I used a technique called Blended Pencils [thanks to Splitcoaststampers resources]. You stamp a solid image using a neutral ink on a neutral cardstock. Colour one of the images with pencils, blending a few colours together, then outline all images with a fine black pen. Very effective outcome.

Recipe:
Cardstock: Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Going Grey, Coloured Pencils
Stamps: Inspired by Nature, Sincere Salutations
Accessories: Bigz Top Note Die, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder, Rich Razzleberry Polka Dots Grosgrain Ribbon, Horizontal Slot Punch

Enjoy
