I started by cutting the Tagged Rectangle, then stamping the sentiment from Birthday Bots in archival black, then coloring with Copics in colors that matched the party invite. I placed a strip of washi tape over the sentiment to mask it off, then stamped the balloons from Birthday Bash and highlighted with a grey Copic. I stamped the balloons again on white and colored with Copics, hand cutting to pop over the tag.
Next I stamped one of the bots from birthday bots and colored with Copics, popping up parts of the head, and tucking him behind the tag. The 3 is a die cut from TCP, which I cut in white, then colored with a Copic marker and accented with a white gel pen. I also offset a basic black mat for it. The stitched circle behind is colored with a copic to match the orange and matted with a pinking circle.
I added in some stripes for the current Sensational Stripes Diva Inspiration challenge with some paper from the Scoot collection. I chose a coordinating red paper for the vertical strip and stamped it randomly with the balloons image from Birthday Bash, then colored with a copic and accented with a white gel pen. Finally, I added the star border from the Scalloped Trim Trio Die Set and then adhered to a panel embossed with my favorite stars & swirls folder.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous start to your weekend.
