Feeling Sketchy challenge #126

Hello !

What about a birthday card to start this month ?
This month challenge at Feeling Sketchy, we had a sketch with circles :

I had the perfect set of stamps (Inkadinkado) for that... It's the same I used for this layout. The technique of this card is not complicated, you just need to be careful. Take a look first :

So you probably are asking yourself how I cut the design to match the stamp, hum ?
First you need to stamp with an ink who can stay wet a long time. I used the Mix'd Media inx by Donna Salazar Design in dark gray. When it's still wet, place your already cut paper (the blue one for me) over the stamped one (the white in the picture) and press gently. The stamp will reversed on the back of your paper so you can easily cut it off ! But be careful to dry the stamp paper before doing anything else or you will have ink everywhere...

Isn't it a cool technique ? I should probably make a video out of it...
If you like the pattern papers, they came from the Coral and Navy stack by DCWV (I was lucky to receive them in my guest DT kit...), and the small birthday sticker is by Heidi Swapp.

So if you want to play with the sketch, you can upload your project to the Feeling Sketchy blog. We have a great sponsor this month : Lacy Sunshine !

See ya !
