Pretty Pink Posh - Birthday Train with Monkey Friends

samedi 20 avril 2024

Hey there,

I'm thrilled to be back with this Pretty Pink Posh birthday card that echoes to the one I made back in February. The designs are the same, we have stenciled backgrounds and colored images, only the color palette changes.

I started off by stamping my images on 80lb Neenah solar white cardstock using an alcohol marker friendly black ink, I used the matching dies to cut them all, and my alcohol markers to color everything.

Here is a detailed list of the stamp sets I used:  Valentine Train for the locomotive, heart wagon, blank wagon, railway and smoke  Monkey Friends for the monkeys and bananas  Jungle Friends for the ivy, flowers and leaves  Birthday Train for the cake wagon and gift wagon  Party Time for the party hats

I cut an 8,5 x 3,5 inches Strathmore bristol smooth panel, and started off by creating a light base using oxide inks with, from top to bottom, tumbled glass, squeezed lemonade and dried marigold. Next I used the Birthday Words stencil along with darker shades of oxide inks to stencil my panel with, from top to bottom, salty ocean, mustard seed and carved pumpkin. I splattered the whole background with water and dried it using a paper towel. I also mixed each of the darker oxide inks with water, and made more splatters on the paper using a small brush, and then I did the same with black soot oxide ink and copic opaque white ink.

Once my background was dry, I attached all the images using 1mm and 2mm foam squares, leaving enough space for my white heat embossed "Delivering birthday wishes" greeting from Birthday Train. And as always I finished my card by adding highlights and details to the images using a white gel pen.
