Winged Birthday

Hello Everybody!

It's my turn to share a card at the Great Impressions Blog.

I love how this turned out.  I used H257 Someone Like You and E492 Twirly Background from the Great Impressions Online Store.  For the Someone Like You I used black embossing powder and then applied walnut stain and spun sugar distress ink over it.

Here is a picture of the background.  The paper is from Simple Stories.  I used spun sugar and the Twirly Background.  There were a few spaces where only 2 twirls would fit so then I just stamped the 2 to fill in.  Then I used light modeling paste with Tim Holtz's dot fade stencil.

The crown and wings are from the Tim Holtz die Heart Wings.  For the crown I put gold embossing powder on it and rhinestones.  For the wings I used dictionary paper and shaded lilac distress ink.  I used glossy accents to glue down the Someone Like You and wings because there is modeling paste underneath, and I wanted to be sure it stuck.

I added a little walnut stain distress ink to the edges.

I am submitting this card into the following challenges:

The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge--Use paste/gesso and a stencil

Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...make everyday special! :)
