Today is Monika's birthday. Monika is one of my designers at ATSM and we are also team mates at STAMPlorations.
Monika is one of the few lucky ladies that got to meet me in April.... oh! whoops! I was one lucky lady to meet Monika back in April while I was in London. We had lunch at St. Martin's in the Field - the Cafe in the Crypt!
I was so appreciative of Monika's efforts - she left at some stupid hour of the morning (like 6am or something) and it took her a number of hours to get there (that's ok, Monika, it only took me like 23 hours to get to you, but you can have your day in the spotlight.. it IS your birthday. Sigh).
All jokes aside Happy Birthday Monika! I hope you have a wonderful day!!
Here is a card that I have made using my Mixed Media goodies (again).
The day I started making this card I received a parcel of goodies that I had ordered (for my birthday). I got a heap of Distress Inks and some Memento Inks.
The base card was coloured using my alcohol inks again. I then sponged over my Fading Dots stencil. The 'bubble' stencil you see was on that I received from Loll for my birthday! I used texture paste with this one.
I sponged three different DI's onto cardstock ( Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans & Broken China) and then stamped my butterflies and punched them out. I doubled them up with little foam squares.
Once the texture paste was dry I used the same bubble stencil and sponged over it with Memento Peanut Brittle.
Then with my Celebrate sentiment from STAMPlorations (Sentiment Builders - Celebrate), I stamped it three times in different colours.
Lastly I sponged a bit of white ink back over the texture paste to give it some more dimension.
Well, I hope you like my card Monika! Have a wonderful day and I hope you are spoilt rotten! xx
I would also like to add my card into the following challenges -
