Meet Birthday Candles.
Hello! I am happy to say I am guest designing for July with the CAS Mix Up Challenge which is to use Stencil Tracing. This is one of my favourite cards I must say. It was fun to make and I love the blues, that also have hints of purple.
On Yupo Paper I used Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Inks in Sailboat Blue and Indigo, along with Blending Solution for my background. The inks get to a point where they are just tacky, which is when I add the deco foil, using gold foil for this card. I then wait for the piece to dry entirely.
Using my stay-tion I lay the stencil on top of the Yupo background and proceed to trace the stencilled parts. First I used my EK Success Calligraphy Pen in gold, then went around the gold pen with my Micron Pen in Navy.
I attached the Yupo to Neenah cardstock, then cut a thin piece of gold glitter paper for the trim. Under the trim I stamped the birthday sentiment using the Happy Birthday from the Altenew Stamp set along with VersaFine Clair Ink in Paradise.
