It's Your Day

Our soon-to-be seven granddaughter Audrey is a budding artist and stamper, so I decided to give her lots of fun things to look at on this card!

The ombre background was achieved with Ranger’s Cut ‘n Dry foam which I cut to the same size as the Zig Zag background.  Reinkers were then applied horizontally and I wound up with what is essentially my own ink pad.  I inked up the Zig Zag stamp with the pad and voilรก: instant colored background!

The Flower Sprig was die cut three times and stacked for added dimension.  The label was die cut twice for the same reason.  With lots of added shimmer from Gelly Roll’s Clear Star pen, I think Audrey’s going to like this one . . .
