I created my background using three of the sentiments from this set. I have a little trick I use to make sure I keep my stamping straight and I made a photo tutorial to explain. I draw a light pencil line from the top left corner of my card base down to the bottom right corner.
Then I center my first word over the line and then make sure each stamped sentiment is stamped identical, I eyeball the spacing in between.
After I have done the middle I draw another line parallel to the left and another to the right.
Then I use the same technique.
Erase the pencil lines and you are done.
A sentiment from Everyday Expressions was masked and stamped on the card base and the pinata image was stamped, colored with Copics and then adhered with foam tape. A few sequins and it's done!
I used Life of the Party and Everyday Expressions for today's card. The perfect sentiments and image for a surprise birthday party! Pop over to the Fresh Squeezed Stamps blog today.
