Celebrate It's Your Birthday - with December Guest Jenn Shurkus

Hello everyone! Jenn Shurkus back with another card to share with you. For this card, I wanted to make a birthday card for my niece Drew. She turned 5 at the beginning of December and she LOVES to create at her easel. Neat and Tangled’s “Paint Night” set was perfect for this! 

I started by stamping, coloring and die cutting the images with Copic markers. I added a little cupcake and 3 balloons from the “Little Monster” set.

For the background, I blended Distress Oxide inks ( Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feather, and Wilted Violet). To do this I pressed some ink onto a pallet directly from the ink pad. Then I used a wet water brush and placed water onto the background in a stripe. With a wet water brush I picked up the ink, and brushed it along the water stripe. I repeated this process for each color. Once I completed the colors I heat set it and spritzed some water droplets as it was drying with the Distress Sprayer.

Once the background was dry I stamped the sentiments from the “Celebrate” set using Versafine Black and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide.

I used a Quickie glue pen and Prisma glitter to add a touch of sparkle to the balloons, cupcake and her dress.

When my niece Drew got this card for her birthday she didn’t believe her mom that Auntie Jenny made the card- the best compliment I could get! Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
