A bright birthday...

Birthday Wishes
Hey!

It's a busy week here on the blogeroo as it's also release time over at Uniko Studio. Today's card features some inky love for Essential Arrows and All Occasion Sentimens #2

There's a cool elongated triangle stamp in the Essential Arrows set that is soooooooo versatile. I kept it pretty simple on this card and stamped a tessellating pattern with it in pink and yellow ink. I added a couple of arrows from the set to lead your eyes to the sentiment. I love the funky nature of those arrows! :)

tips and tricks
  • Keep scraps from other projects within easy reach on your desk. That star is a random die cut I had that was just waiting for its moment to shine on a project. :)
  • When stamping a pattern in two inks, it saves time to do all the stamping in one colour first (no need to clean your stamp after every impression). So for this card I stamped all the pink triangles first, cleaned my stamp and then stamped all of the yellow triangles.

All of the new goodies will be available from June 11th so be sure to check 'em out!

That's all from me today. Gotta keep it short and sweet. Thanks for stopping by today!

Talk about needing shades! I love the way the black off-sets the bright colors in a super bold way! I also like how the arrows move your eye around the card.
