Starry Bday cu 08772
Happy Easter!
Weekly-Favorite

And a  big congrats to Jenn, the newest Featured Stamper (FS477) on Splitcoast! She has such a wonderful, colorful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I really liked the color combo so I kept that (though mine ended up more purple than violet, lol), but I changed the snowflakes into stars & made my own background since I couldn’t find the dp she used.

To make my background, I sponged the violet ink from the bottom up & the pistachio ink from the top down onto a piece of white card stock.  Water drops from a water brush were splattered across the panel to make pale circles. Then I used a dot stencil and a white marker to add whiter dots & I also used a dry marker I touched to the surface of the 2 ink pads to make darker small dots. For the bigger dots I used a pencil eraser touched to the ink pads & also a white pigment ink pad. I also used the tiny star image stamped here & there w/ the violet & pistachio inks.

The finished bg was die cut twice & I turned the larger, outer layer around & put it back around the main panel. Then I added all the die cut & sponged star frames. The greeting was stamped w/ the Versafine purple ink, die cut & the edges sponged. 

Here’s a look at the inside. I used the panel I cut the star frames from, sponged it as I did the front.  Starry Bday inside 08778
Congrats again, Jenn! Thanks so much for stopping by!
