Inky Paws Challenge 69: Happy Birthday…a Little Late

Happy Monday, friends!  I’m back with a little inspiration for Inky Paws Challenge 69 – Birthday Theme.  I hope you’ll come play along for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to Newton’s Nook Designs!

I paired one of the adorable kitties from Newton’s Birthday Bash with the amazing new Confetti Stencil and Birthday Essentials stamp set.  I stamped the kitty and party hat (from the same set) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copics.  After cutting them out, I brushed some Clear Sparkle Overlay onto the hat and balloon.

To me, the star of this card is the background peeking out from the right.  I inked up some Bristol paper with Worn Lipstick and Seedless Preserves distress inks and then inked it again with the same colors over the new Confetti Stencil.  I removed the stencil before adding droplets of water, which I blotted with a towel.  After cleaning my stencil, I placed it back down onto my paper and spread some Nuvo Glimmer Paste over it.  Isn’t that sparkle amazing?!  I trimmed a strip from the panel and adhered it to a white card.

Onto a piece of white cardstock, I stamped some confetti from Newton’s Birthday Bash with the same colors of distress ink.  I stamped a sentiment from Birthday Essentials with Versafine Onyx Black ink and popped up the kitty with foam tape.  A few clear sequins finishing the card.

Thanks for stopping by!  For a chance at the $20 prize, be sure to link up a project by Friday, April 13th, at midnight CST.
