Wild foxy birthday with Kaja

September 15, 2018

Hi there,
It's Kaja from Kajcyika crafts and today I will show you my first card as a GSD design team member! 

Take a look at the card:
I made a cute fall card that is perfect for these days! I started by ink blending and I used three colors of Distress ink - Forest moss, Peeled paint and Crushed olive. I went from darkest at the bottom towards the lightest at the top.

To make the background more interesting I used clear water and make some splatters. This gives a nice effect of rainy fall weather. 

Next, I die cut the background into a stitched square and I started working on the images.

I used two GSD stamp sets for the images, the main one is called Foxes (the fox image and mashrooms) and the second one is called Happy fall (the leaves). I stamped everything out with memento tuxido black ink and then used alcohol markers to color them in. 

Next, I placed everything on the inkblended panel using liquid glue and foam rectangles.

The last thing I added was the sentiment. I really wanted to make a birthday card so I used the sentiment that reads 'it's your birthday go wild!' from Go wild! stamp set.

To finish the card off, I glued the sentiment and the background down using double sided tape. 

That's it for today! Thank you so much for joining me! See you next time.

Hi, Margreet here.
This is my second creation with the Gerda Steiner Designs Halloween Kids Digital Stamps Bundle.
