Birthday Card

Hello everyone! :o)

Today I want to share with you CAS (clean and simple), one layer, Birthday Card.

For my card layout I used CAS(E) this Sketch #167Paper Smooches 'Positive Strokes Two', which I have quite time and never used them before, fit perfectly to this sketch.

I inked brush stroke with Archival Ink and stamped it directly on a card base. I stamped strokes one after another, not re inking the stamp, creating Ombré Effect. This way I got nice grey shades and I didn't use grey ink. I think this would fit to second generation stamping technique description. Then I stamped yellow brush stroke with Distress Ink Mustard Seed.

With some masking, I stamped sentiment from new Jane's Doodles 'Cake' Stamp Set and small star from Mama Elephant 'Cosmic Stars' Stamp Set and my card was finished.

Card dimensions: 95 mm x 133 mm (3 3/4 " x 5 1/4")

List of supplies:
