Today is the Seize the Birthday Thursday and we are having the second challenge of this year! Our lovely boss Nancy chose the Toppings option this time and she wants us to use some Stencils. 

I’m not good at using stencils for my cards. So this topping was challenging for me. Fortunately I remembered that I have a stencil and the matching stamp set by Penny Black. The stamp set is a simple floral branch, called Softly (30-319) and the stencil is Promenade (25-001)


I white heat embossed the Softly image two times on a Canson XL watercolor paper panel. I applied lots of water on it and sprinkled Orange and Lemon Yellow Color Burst powder on the flowers. I moved the panel to blend the colors and sprayed pearl water on it. I helped the colors go on the flowers with a brush and let the panel dry. I colored the leaves in Sepia.


After the panel was dry, I stenciled the Promenade image using Nuvo Glimmer paste on it and let it dry.  The sentiment is from Good Wishes (30-541) set by Penny Black. I stamped it in a black pigment ink and clear heat embossed. I trimmed down the panel and foam mounted it on a kraft cardbase. I finished off the card by adding some clear iridescent sequins.


That’s it! Now it’s your turn to play along! If you don’t like to take the Topping, you may enter any birthday themed project into our gallery!
